VALADARES, Lohan Claudio Abreu and PASA, Maria Corette. Use of plants and animals by the riverine population from Rio Vermelho Community, central western Brazil. Interações (Campo Grande) [online]. 2012, vol.13, n.2, pp. 225-232. ISSN 1518-7012. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S1518-70122012000200009.
This study approached Rio Vermelho community, in the state of Mato Grosso. This type of community is important for supplying the cities with fruits, vegetables and products made from animal's extract. Data obtained shows natural resources are more related to a source of income than self-consumption and the perception of nature in a sense of awe and beauty, not considering important organisms that indirectly benefits or harms their crops and breeding.
