This publication is a testament to the enormous potential that integrating traditional and scientific knowledge can have for both local communities and academic and development professionals alike. It also serves as a reminder to the scientific community that science should be shared with local people and not confined to journals and closed circles of technical experts. From Brazil nuts and Cat's claw to Copaiba and Titica, this book shares a wealth of information on a wide range of plant species that only close collaboration between local peoples and researchers could possibly breed.
