About this product
- DescriptionAfrican Ethbotany in the Americas provides the first comprehensive examination of ethbotanical kwledge and skills among the African Diaspora in the Americas. Leading scholars on the subject explore the complex relationship between plant use and meaning among the descendants of Africans in the New World. With the aid of archival and field research carried out in North America, South America, and the Caribbean, contributors explore the historical, environmental, and political-ecological factors that facilitated/hindered transatlantic ethbotanical diffusion; the role of Africans as active agents of plant and plant kwledge transfer during the period of plantation slavery in the Americas; the significance of cultural resistance in refining and redefining plant-based traditions; the principal categories of plant use that resulted; the exchange of kwledge among Amerindian, European and other African people; and the changing significance of African-American ethbotanical traditions in the 21st century. Bolstered by abundant visual content and contributions from rewned experts in the field, African Ethbotany in the Americas is an invaluable resource for students, scientists, and researchers in the field of ethbotany and African Diaspora studies.
