"...the book is well-edited and most contributions are written comprehensively. It will certainly be useful to researchers with an interest in cognitive aspects of ethnopharmacology, but also ethnoscience in general."  ·  JRAI


Numerous scholars, in particular anthropologists, historians, economists, linguists, and biologists, have, over the last few years, studied forms of knowledge and use of nature, and of the ways nature can be protected and conserved. Some of the most prominent scholars have come together in this volume to reflect on what has been achieved so far, to compare the work carried out in the past, to discuss the problems that have emerged from different research projects, and to map out the way forward.

Glauco Sanga teaches at the Ca'Foscari University, Venice.

Gherardo Ortalli is the Academic Director of the Istituto Veneto.

Published in Association with the Istituto Veneto di Scienze, Lettere ed Arti, Venice.
