Discusses the importance of plants in both ancient and modern societies, including the use of plants in religious ceremonies and medicine.

Facts on File
Both an ancient way of life and a relatively new and thriving scientific field, ethnobotany is the study of how particular cultures make use of local plants for food, fuel, medicine, shelter, and in many cultures, for religious ceremonies. This book covers all these aspects of ethnobotany, with special interest in the significance of plants in the development of new drugs, as modern scientists look to traditional healing remedies for clues in the ongoing fight against disease.
