Abstract

This article discloses the analysis of «feeding landscapes» and their natural ecological resources, which are the basis of life support systems of indigenous populations. We consider all following risks and changes of their traditional lifestyle. By the example of one of ethnic groups we demonstrate coping strategies and adaptations to climatic and environmental changes with due consideration of ethno-cultural specifics.

Keywords
