Resumen

CAMUS, PATRICIO A. The involvement of naturalists: Introduction to the Special Feature "Applying ecology". Rev. chil. hist. nat. [online]. 2011, vol.84, n.2, pp.155-160. ISSN 0716-078X.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0716-078X2011000200001.

This article firstly introduces the Special Feature "Applying Ecology", addressing the use of ecological information for dealing with conservation and environmental problems in Chile. This is part of a series of special features in Revista Chilena de Historia Natural, intended for exploring the contribution of naturalists in making sound decisions in social-environmental planning. However, the low involvement of Chilean biologists has become a factor potentially affecting the quality of environmental decisions and policies, and increasing the chance of unwanted results, which raises some open questions about ethics. In such a context, the second part of the article analyzes the issue of involvement from different perspectives, considering its causes and consequences at individual and collective levels.

Palabras clave : conservation biology; ecology; ethics; occupational identity; society.
