Bioculturalism

In biological anthropology, biocultural approaches are those that explicitly recognize the dynamics interactions between humans as biological being and the social, cultural and physical environments they inhabit.

Bioculturalism provides a new conceptual framework for studying the interactions of biology, culture and human agency. And that sustaining both is necessary for ecological and cultural well being. It is an emerging term and concept that marks a radical step.

Wiley (1992) described bioculturalism, as biological research with social correlates while Stinson (2000) have stressed the important of both evolutionary and cultural perspectives in explanations of human biological variation. Bioculturalism recognizes the interdependence between cultural knowledge systems and language and the maintenance of ecological diversity.
