    AN INTRODUCTION TO ethnobotany. Connie Veilleux and Steven R.King, Ph.D. LindaMorganstein, editor. Shaman Pharmaceuticals, Inc. WHAT IS ethnobotany?
    Connie Veilleux and Steven R.King, Ph.D.
    Linda Morganstein, editor Shaman Pharmaceuticals, Inc. work interdisciplinary to discover new drugs.
    Photo by Steven R. King, 1996. Since the beginning of civilization, people have used plants as medicine. Perhaps as early as Neanderthal man, plants were believed to have healing powers. The earliest recorded uses are found in Babylon circa 1770 BC in the Code of Hammurabi and in ancient Egypt circa 1550 B.C. In fact, ancient Egyptians believed medicinal plants to have utility even in the afterlife of their pharaohs. Plants have been recovered from the Giza pyramids and can be found on display in a dark corner of t Access Excellence Resource Center he Cairo Museum. A discussion of human life on this planet would not be complete without a look at the role of plants. A complete record of the many thousands of plant species used for human functioning would fill volumes, yet historians have often tended "to dismiss plants as less than fundamental in history." In recent years, however, there has been a reawakened scientific interest in the fundamental role plants play in many cultures, including medicinal purposes.

    What is Ethnobotany and why is it so important?
    Ethnobotany also traces the development of modern Medicine and Herbalism, the Paper Industry, The Chemical Industry, Rubber Industry and as mentioned above the Food Industry. Every year new species are being discovered or are being reconsidered for modern applications in all the above Industries and Sciences. It has now become a concern of the modern world to preserve and gather all information on the utility of these plant species. And this research is not beyond the reach of the common person, it is just often times over looked, for instance; Do you know the herbal remedies that say your grandmother or great grandmother used to for illnesses? Do you know how they harvested, dyed and made fabric from simple cotton or flax? If not then you can see why this science is most important.
    Our purpose primarily is to maintain a living herbaria of some of the more rare species of Ethnobotanical interests. By preserving seeds and plants and by offering them to private individuals, Educational Institutions, Research facilities and the Business sectors, hopefully these plants will be kept from extinction and will find a much broader application in our modern society.

    "The role of plants in society"
    Saturday March 15, 2003. Beware the Ides of March! The forums are back up! If you thought you were going to a Canadian commercial site, you might actually have been looking for Ethnogarden Botanicals . Tell them we sent you! -G- Ethnobotany has many different definitions. The most widely accepted and used is "the use of plants in primitive societies". Richard Evans Schultes, one of the modern fathers of ethnobotany expands upon this definition defining ethnobotany as "the study of human evaluation and manipulation of plant materials, substances, and phenomenon, including relevant concepts, in primitive or unlettered societies." Important concepts in ethnobotany today also include economic botany, sustainable harvesting (ethical wildcrafting ), ethics and intellectual property rights, and as a representational voice for the cultures where the field work is done. As a field of research and study, ethnobotany is an interdisciplinary approach using botany, anthropology, history, chemistry, and many others. The ethnobotany garden is a community of people looking for plant knowledge of all kinds. Please check back often as we will be continually working on this site.

    by: Sarah Mason Ethnobotany is the study of the use of plants by people, and can draw on many sources ranging from anthropological or ethnobotanical studies of current plant use by existing peoples, through documentary and historical sources (travellers' tales, writings of the Classical authors, Mediaeval Herbals, etc.), to present-day cookery or woodworking books, to give a few examples. Ethnobotany is a burgeoning field, as evidenced by the vast number of general handbooks on the subject which have appeared recently, though much interest is focused on such commercially-viable fields as ethnopharmacology (or medicinal plant use - for info on an interesting and informative mailing list related to this topic visit the Phytopharmacognosy list Home Page , or on 'fundable' topics such as studies of biodiversity. Along with an increasing awareness of the value of what is often rapidly-disappearing indigenous or traditional knowledge of the uses of plants, there is an increasing awareness of the need by those who wish to obtain ethnobotanical data from cultures other than their own to take account of 'indigenous property rights' (IPR), and to respect the 'ownership' of such cultural or traditional knowledge - the Society of Ethnobiology (see Ethnobotany Links, below), for instance, now has a Code of Ethics and Standards of Practice which covers this. A number of Internet links exist dealing with both the practical and ethical aspects 'of indigenous' (IK) or 'traditional environmental knowledge' (TEK), and can be useful online sources for ethnobotany (see also my

    Ethnobotany and Cultural Resources of the Washington State Department of Transportation
    Scott T. Clay-Poole, Ph.D. Ethnobotany is the study of the relationship between cultures and plants. The following information is a condensed extraction from a list of references on the uses of western Washington plants by a wide variety of cultures. The plants are listed by scientific name and common name. The plants are initially listed as those found at cultural sites along the right-of-way previous to highway safety improvements in the state of Washington. None of the plants listed are recommended for use. But if plant material is utilized in some way by the viewer that individual species must be accurately identified by an expert and then used with caution.* Some plants are included because of interest and/or beauty and like the rest, may be susceptible to rapid decimation in local areas. Plants such as Tiger lily, Chocolate lily, and Calypso having edible bulbs necessitates destroying the entire plant for minimal sustenance. Please think conservatively if you feel you need to "take" a plant.

    This programme draws on the combined strengths of three academic centres. At the University of Kent at Canterbury, the Department of Anthropology has pioneered research and teaching in ethnobiology and human ecology; it has been rated excellent for Teaching, and its work in anthropological approaches to the environment flagged for excellence in the most recent HEFCE Research Assessment Exercise. The Durrell Institute for Conservation and Ecology (DICE) is known internationally for its work in the study and practical implementation of biodiversity management around the world. The Royal Botanic Gardens at Kew has unrivalled plant collections and botanical expertise, as well as long-standing global involvement with economic botany. All three partners are involved in major funded projects which have resulted in substantial published output. Members of staff have particular expertise in ethnobiological classification, historical ecology, computing applications, indigenous knowledge, ethnographic research methods, the human ecology of tropical subsistence systems, wildlife conservation, biodiversity management, agricultural change, sustainable development, economic botany and plant taxonomy. Regionally, we have relevant research experience in South East Asia, the Pacific, tropical South America, Mesoamerica, and sub-Saharan Africa.
