1. Ethnobotany - Wikipedia, The Free Encyclopedia
ethnobotany (from ethnology study of culture and botany - study of plants) is the scientific study of the relationships that exist between people and plants.
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia Jump to: navigation search Ethnobotany from " ethnology " - study of culture and " botany " - study of plants ) is the scientific study of the relationships that exist between people and plants Ethnobotanists aim to document, describe and explain complex relationships between cultures and (uses of) plants: focusing, primarily, on how plants are used, managed and perceived across human societies (e.g. as foods; as medicines; in divination; in cosmetics; in dyeing; as textiles; in construction; as tools; as currency; as clothing; in literature; in rituals; and in social life.)
edit History of ethnobotany
Plants have been widely used by American Indian healers, such as this Ojibwa man. Though the term "ethnobotany" was not coined until 1895 by the US botanist John William Harshberger , the history of the field begins long before that. In AD 77, the Greek surgeon Dioscorides published " De Materia Medica ", which was a catalog of about 600 plants in the Mediterranean. It also included information on how the Greeks used the plants, especially for medicinal purposes. This illustrated herbal contained information on how and when each plant was gathered, whether or not it was poisonous, its actual use, and whether or not it was edible (it even provided recipes). Dioscorides stressed the economic potential of plants. For generations, scholars learned from this herbal, but did not actually venture into the field until after the Middle Ages.

Taking back the rainforest: Indians in Colombia govern 100,000 square miles of territory

(05/10/2010) Indigenous groups in the Colombian Amazon have long suffered deprivations at the hands of outsiders. First came the diseases brought by the European Conquest, then came abuses under colonial rule. In modern times, some Amazonian communities were virtually enslaved by the debt-bondage system run by rubber traders: Indians could work their entire lives without ever escaping the cycle of debt. Later, periodic invasions by gold miners, oil companies, colonists, and illegal coca-growers took a heavy toll on remaining indigenous populations. Without title to their land, organization, or representation, indigenous Colombians in the Amazon seemed destined to be exploited and abused. But new hope would emerge in the 1980s, thanks partly to the efforts of Martin von Hildebrand, an ethnologist who would help indigenous Colombians eventually win control over 260,000 square kilometers (100,000 square miles) of Amazon rainforest—an area larger than the United Kingdom.

Research into drugs derived from natural products declining

(07/09/2009) Although the majority of drugs available today have been derived from natural products, research into nature-based pharmaceuticals has declined in recent years due to high development costs and the drug approvals process. However this trend is likely to reverse due to new approaches and technologies, according researchers from the University of Alberta.

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.

Texas Beyond History TBH Home

Ethnobotany Main Ethnobotany Gallery
The rich archeological evidence from the Lower Pecos Canyonlands in southwest Texas reveals how native peoples who lived in the region throughout prehistoric times made use of many different wild plants for food, medicine, tools, construction, ritual, and fuel. This special exhibit is a teaching and research tool for those who seek to understand the intimate links between plants and people. Many of these plants are also found in adjacent regions and were utilized by native groups across much of the Edwards Plateau, the Trans-Pecos Mountains and Basins, and the South Texas Plains, as well as northern Chihuahua and Coahuila in Mexico. Some of the same plants and closely related species occur far beyond the region in distant areas of North America and Mexico. The 38 gallery entries in this exhibit may be a bit technical, but scientific details and references are necessary for serious students of ethnobotany (as well as botany, archeology, and natural history). Elsewhere on this website additional illustrated discussions of plants typically used by prehistoric peoples appear in the "Nature's Harvest" sections of three regional exhibit sets: Plateaus and Canyonlands South Texas Plains , and Trans-Pecos Mountains and Basins . These sections include partially overlapping entries for some of the same plants presented in this exhibit, as well as many entries for other plants, some of which also can be found in the Lower Pecos Canyonlands. Many of the plants that were used by the Native American peoples of Texas occur in broad areas of the state.

Welcome to the Department of Anthropology
Anthropology involves the study of present and past human culture and biology to better understand the human species. With diverse but overlapping subfields, including archaeological biological sociocultural linguistic , and applied anthropology , anthropology spans the social, behavioral, and natural sciences as well as humanities, providing a strong core to a liberal arts education. Whether studying the diversity of marriage customs in human societies, anatomical changes in the foot during human evolution, biocultural factors contributing to chronic disease, cultural and biological changes surrounding the transition to agriculture, or the origins of language, anthropologists are united in trying to understand who we are, where we come from, and where we are going in the future. As we face the many challenges of globalization in today’s world, the knowledge to be gained through the study of anthropology becomes increasingly important:  studying past and present human biological and cultural variability to better understand the interactions among culturally, religiously and politically diverse societies; preserving cultural resources for future generations; learning about the biological, political, and cultural factors responsible for the spread of diseases to mitigate effects of future outbreaks; applying the techniques of forensic anthropology to a mass graves to bring crimes against humanity to justice.  An undergraduate degree in anthropology gives students a strong foundation for many different career paths that may or may not include the pursuit of an advanced degree.

What is Ethnobotany and why is it important?
The aim of Ethnobotany is to study how and why people use and conceptualize plants in their local environments. The two questions most asked are (1) how and in what ways people use nature and (2) how and in what ways people view nature. Ethnobotanists gather data mainly from living peoples in hopes of gathering a view of their past existence as well as an understanding of present uses of plants for food, medicine, construction materials, and tools. Ethnobotanical research can be a door into cultural realities as well as a way to understand the future of human relationships with this land we call Turtle Island, Bear's Back, and the Earth (Salmon 1999). The historical dimensions of ethnobotany that were largely listings of plants, names, and uses play a role in contemporary approaches to traditional plant knowledge. Most past researchers did not regard what the people thought about plants as important. The situation today is that researchers would like to include conceptualizations of plants in their studies, but do not have the methods to do this. This does not criticize ethnobotany, but rather attempts to build the framework upon which new methodological approaches can be explored. The first section briefly discusses the history of the definition of ethnobotany, then moves to a discussion of the primary methods of field research. This is followed by an overview of the recent flowering of the concept of traditional ecological knowledge (TEK) and its influence on ethnobotanical research and methods.

Ethnobotany of Western Washington
Wherever possible, UW anthropology professor Erna Gunther would go on a walk with a member of a Native American tribe to pick the plant specimens that she was studying. It wasn't always possible, though. Some of the "informants," as she called them, who participated in her study of the ethnobotany of Western Washington, were too old for that and often bedridden. And so she would bring the plants to them, freshly picked, if feasible. She tried to arrange to speak with both a man and a woman from the same tribe. Women knew the food and medicinal plants, and were more likely to give information on charms and potions; men knew the materials in nets, fishing gear, and wood working. This work of Gunther's, conducted in the 1930s and first published in 1945, "was an innovation, since at the time there had been no ethnobiological investigation of the Northwest culture," according to a biography in "Women Anthropologists." Many consider it her most popular work.
