Ethnobotany at the interface between human subsistence and the environment in Africa

, : Ethnobotany at the interface between human subsistence and the environment in Africa. Food systems under stress in Africa: African Canadian research cooperation Proceedings of a workshop held in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada, 7-8 November 1993: 114-125

Wild and indigenous cultivated plant resources have been essential to the well-being of subsistence communities in Africa for millennia and continue to be so. As well as satisfying human subsistence needs, plants are integral parts of the natural environment. As the study of human interactions with plants, therefore, ethnobotany has an excellent vantage point on the apparently antithetical goals of fulfilling needs on the one hand and of conserving the environment on the other.
