CASTRO SALAZAR, Jesús Ignacio  y  TOVAR CABANAS, Rodrigo. Plurality and legal loopholes in eco-laws related to protected natural areas within state jurisdiction in Mexico. Región y sociedad [online]. 2018, vol.30, n.72, 00009. ISSN 2448-4849.

This article discusses plurality and legal loopholes in pro­tected natural areas in Mexico, considering them a key tool for the conservation of hundreds of species and ecosystems. Based on the legislation in force until the end of 2015, the study was carried out on a nationwide scale in order to iden­tify legal loopholes related to these areas. Firstly, the state of the art and the theoretical-conceptual approach guid­ing the study are presented; then the methodology used, based mainly on content analysis, is described. Likewise, re­sults and discussions on plurality of laws in this regard are shown, as well as loopholes existing in them. Among the first ones, it should be noted that, even though in almost all states there are protected natural areas, most of them do not have laws regulating these areas. Also, many of them autho­rize self-consumption, without defining it.

Palabras llave : state legislation; environmental legislation; protected natural areas; legal loopholes; Mexico.
