Reviews

“It is an excellent review of current trends in ethnobotany as well as a summary of theory and praxis. … This is a very helpful, authoritative, and above all, a thought-provoking contribution valuable to researchers and especially students beginning ethnobotanical research.” (Lytton John Musselman, Economic Botany, Vol. 71 (04), 2017)
