My name is Armin Macanović. I'm an employee of Faculty of Science, University of Sarajevo as Teaching Assistant. I`m a Phd student, currently researching state of using traditional knowledge and ecosistem services of biodiversity in Bosnia and Herzegovina. Through this and other research, I have realised many filed trips, and collect many relevé data. Over the past five years I realised many projects and filed trips together with prof. Senka Barudanović and Phd. Ermin Mašić. Also I`m an active member of Center for Ecology and Natural Resources - Academician Sulejman Redžić. My research interests are environmental biology, botany, vegetation ecology and conservation ecology.
For the purpose of disseminating knowledge about sustainable development and the conservation of the traditional knowledge we are trying to carry out one research called “Evaluating the state of the ecosystem services and traditional knowledge about biodiversity of the Federation of Bosnia and Herzegovina”. The general goal is the recognition, storing and reintroduction of traditional knowledge and practice in the use of the biodiversity of Bosnia and Herzegovina as one of the means of reaching a sustainable development. This research is actually a part of the doctoral dissertation and should contribute to the sustainable return of population into the rural areas. The success of the realization of the research would prepare a base for a better representation and understanding the potential of this sort of knowledge which has been gathered in Bosnia and Herzegovina over the centuries of its’ history. I was a participant in over 12 scientific projects, author of several scientific papers and co-author of two monographs.
