Uri Mayer-Chissick, Efraim Lev

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


Studying the traditional knowledge of gathering wild edible plants around the world might teach us a great deal about the patterns of domestication and the connections between wild edible plants and “domesticated” cultivated plants. It is even more important and relevant if we consider that until not long ago, gathering of wild edible plants was a core daily practice, alongside the practice of agriculture and that the source if all our cultivated plants are gathered wild plants.
