Sociobiodiversity is “the result of the sum of nature plus society” (ARAUJO, 2013, p. 8). It means the set of cultural interactions, that is, the link between cultures and biodiversity with all the social and ecological implications that arise from it (CAVALHEIRO; ARAUJO, 2017), constituting the social practices of production or community experience in dealing with the biodiversity.


Sociobiodiversity involves the relationship between agrobiodiversity - traditional agricultural systems - and biodiversity, considering the use and management of its resources arising in accordance with the knowledge and culture of traditional peoples, aimed at maintaining and valuing their knowledge, providing their subsistence, respecting the preservation of the environment (IPÊ, 2019 apud IZOLANI, 2021, p. 41).

This thematic axis of Ruptura focuses on the protection of human rights, socio-biodiversity and the fight against the ecological crisis, approaching, in a complex and interdisciplinary way, different theoretical currents regarding the causes, consequences and solutions to modern socio-environmental problems.


We focus on critical studies about modern production models, especially from a perspective on agroecology, sovereignty and food security. We also dedicate ourselves, among others, to the themes of constitutionalism and environmental law, socio-environmental sustainability, ecofeminisms and ecosocialism.
