The Cultural History of Plants provides details on over plant species in 21 thematic chapters. Coverage encompasses plants cultivated for virtually every purpose, from the manufacture of textiles, perfume, and drugs, to those used for food and ornament. Written by some of the world's leading ethnobotanists, these chapters begin with a useful one-page overview of its subject followed by concise A-Z entries, and conclude with a generous bibliography pointing out sources for further research. In addition to listing the common names for each plant, each entry also provides the Latin name and names used in Britain and the Unites States. Concluding chapters give up-to-date information on industrial agriculture, invasive plants, conservation of wild plant biodiversity and endangered species, and conservation of crop genetic resources. This unique reference is a valuable aid for ethnobotanists and horticultural enthusiasts, archaeologists and social historians, and anyone concerned with the relationship between people and plants. This attractive reference contains more than 1,000 plant entries in the form of concise histories, maps, and over black and white illustrations. The Latin entries, organized A to Z within each thematic section, cover food and flowering plants, as well as those used for textiles, perfume, and drugs. End-of-entry bibliographies and cross-references to common names are included throughout. Appendixes include lists of protected species, plant collection sites, a glossary, and a chronology of plant migration. Copyright C Muze Inc. For personal use only. All rights reserved.
