More About Florida Ethnobotany by Daniel F. Austin
 
 
 
Overview
This indispensable reference is a compilation of the ethnobotany of Florida. Emphasizing tropical plants, which are rarely covered in North American botany texts, it presents a cross-cultural study of the plants shared by different floras and peoples. It provides synopses for all native plants used by indigenous tribes in the southeast United States, including common names and their translations, which are cross-referenced to their technical names. It details how each plant was used, ranging from daily utilitarian use, such as dyes, fibers, and wood, to medicinal, food, and religious uses. This book is a must for ethnobotanists, herbalists, anthropologists, ecologists, and conservation managers.
