Herbs and the Evolution of Human Societies
The contributions gathered together in this volume analyse the link that humankind establishes with nature, examining the way in which a dialogue has been initiated between these two worlds and how it has evolved. From a geographical point of view, the text takes the reader to Africa, America, Asia and Europe via Brazil, Canada, China, Ethiopia, France, Somalia, Switzerland, Tibet, Tunisia, Ukraine, and the United States, providing a meeting ground between plants and humanity in different dimensions.
