Book Description :

Historical Ethnobiology presents a unique approach to analyzing human-nature interactions, using theoretical and methodological aspects to examine historical scientific knowledge. This book disseminates the notion that past local narratives of biodiversity influence the determination of both historical and modern scientific decisions. Beginning with a brief history of ethnobiology's development, this book delves into conceptual models, historical knowledge areas, and the theoretical matrix of ethnobiology. This book also focuses on the importance of memory including topics of memory production by human in different epochs and how individual memory records contribute to social history and the understanding of the past effects of human interaction with nature. Looking ahead, it discusses the importance of records such as these for determining future mankind's relationships with nature to preserve biodiversity and ensure conservation. Historical Ethnobiology is the first book to focus on past human-nature interactions and their interpretations in today's scientific culture. This book is an excellent resource for students and researchers in biology, ethnobiology, and anthropology. Presents an inclusive interpretation and use of historical botanical, zoological and geographical registers kept in institutions to reconnect the past with modern issues Illuminates documental analysis of past interactions between humans and nature Provides a comprehensive and accessible reference point to provide insights into a rapidly growing field

Book Description :

The single comprehensive treatment of the field, from the leading members of the Society of Ethnobiology The field of ethnobiology—the study of relationships between particular ethnic groups and their native plants and animals—has grown very rapidly in recent years, spawning numerous subfields. Ethnobiological research has produced a wide range of medicines, natural products, and new crops, as well as striking insights into human cognition, language, and environmental management behavior from prehistory to the present. This is the single authoritative source on ethnobiology, covering all aspects of the field as it is currently defined. Featuring contributions from experienced scholars and sanctioned by the Society of Ethnobiology, this concise, readable volume provides extensive coverage of ethical issues and practices as well as archaeological, ethnological, and linguistic approaches. Emphasizing basic principles and methodology, this unique textbook offers a balanced treatment of all the major subfields within ethnobiology, allowing students to begin guided research in any related area—from archaeoethnozoology to ethnomycology to agroecology. Each chapter includes a basic introduction to each topic, is written by a leading specialist in the specific area addressed, and comes with a full bibliography citing major works in the area. All chapters cover recent research, and many are new in approach; most chapters present unpublished or very recently published new research. Featured are clear, distinctive treatments of areas such as ethnozoology, linguistic ethnobiology, traditional education, ethnoecology, and indigenous perspectives. Methodology and ethical action are also covered up to current practice. Ethnobiology is a specialized textbook for advanced undergraduates and graduate students; it is suitable for advanced-level ethnobotany, ethnobiology, cultural and political ecology, and archaeologically related courses. Research institutes will also find this work valuable, as will any reader with an interest in ethnobiological fields.

Book Description :

Indus Ethnobiology: New Perspectives From the Field is a unique and fascinating collection of interdisciplinary essays that study the Indus or Harappan Civilization of South Asia, one of the earliest urban civilizations. The essays in this volume utilize an ethnobiological approach to offer fresh insights into the sociocultural adaptations of the Indus people, as well as into urbanism and ecological and cultural change. Each article, written by a prominent scholar working in the region, studies animal and plant remains in order to explore issues such as environment, vegetation history, habitat exploitation, pastoralism, subsistence systems and agriculture. Incorporating biological, anthropological, and archeological theory, Indus Ethnobiology exemplifies what ethnobiology is and ought to be: a powerful source of ideas about the interrelationships between living organisms and human culture.

Book Description :

Interest in environmental anthropology has grown steadily in recent years, reflecting national and international concern about the environment and developing research priorities, This major new international series is a vehicle for publishing up-to-date monographs and edited works on particular issues, themes, places, or peoples which focus on the interrelationship between society, culture, and the environment. Relevant areas include human ecology, the perception and representation of the environment, ethno-ecological knowledge, the human dimension of biodiversity conservation, and the ethnorgraphy of environmental problems. while the underlying ethos of the series will be anthropological, the approach is interdisciplinary. The Study of European wild food plants and herbal medicines in an old discipline that has been invigorated by a new generation of researchers pursuing ehnobotanical studies in new contexts. Modern botanical and medical science itself was built on studies of medieval Europeans' use of food plants and medicinal herbs. In spite of monumental changes introduced in the Age of Discovery and Mercantile Capitalism, some communities, often immigrants in foreign lands, continue to hold onto old recipes and traditons, while others have adopted and enculturated exotic plants and remedies into their diets and pharmacopoeia in new and creative ways. Now in the 21st century, in the age of the European Union and globalization, European folk botany is once again dynamically responding to changing cultural, economic and political contexts. The authors and studies presented in this volume reflect work being conducted across Europe's many regions. They tell the soty of the ongoing evolution of human-plant relations in one of the most bioculturally dynamic places on the planet, and explore new approaches that link the re-evaluation of plant-based cultural heritage with the conservation and use of biocultural diversity.

Book Description :

The tremendous increase in migrations and diasporas of human groups in the last decades are not only bringing along challenging issues for society, especially related to the economic and political management of multiculturalism and culturally effective health care, but they are also creating dramatic changes in traditional knowledge, believes and practices (KBP) related to (medicinal) plant use. The contributors to this volume - all internationally recognized scholars in the field of ethnobiology, transcultural pharmacy, and medical anthropology - analyze these dynamics of traditional knowledge in especially 12 selected case studies. Ina Vandebroek, features in Nova's Secret Life of Scientists, answering the question: just what is ethnobotany?
