It covers the entire field, including laboratory biology, medical anthropology, archaeological, ethnological, and linguistic approaches. This unique text allows students to begin doing guided research in any area of ethnobiology, from archaeoethnozoology to ethnomycology. It is suitable for advanced-level ethnobotany, ethnobiology, and archaeologically related courses, as well as research institutes.
