Definition of the noun Bioregion

What does Bioregion mean as a name of something?

noun - plural: bioregions

  1. An eco-region.


Bioregion: A bioregion is an ecologically and geographically defined area that is smaller than an ecozone, but larger than an ecoregion and an ecosystem. La bioregión es aquel territorio que conforma un espacio con características naturales, geográficas e históricas comunes, y que potencia sus valores identitarios 1. Las bioregiones son una experiencia social y natural, y son conciencia que surge de relacionarse a través del tiempo con el terreno y el paisaje en particular. En tanto, que mucha de la conciencia humana es atraída hacia un mundo global cada vez más abstracto, la visión biorregional busca enmendar la tela destrozada de la vida, volver a tejer la red de las relaciones entre la gente y el lugar. El centro de la experiencia humana, históricamente y en la visión biorregional, es la relación de las comunidades humanas con su matriz de naturaleza local y regional. Las bioregiones reúnen a la naturaleza y a la sociedad dentro del contexto de lugares específicos. El enfoque biorregional regresa a un sentido que conforma mucha de la experiencia humana, y que se oscureció recientemente, en la era industrial.
