Ethnobotany is the study of the traditional knowledge and beliefs of a particular culture regarding the use of plants for food, medicine, and other purposes. This interdisciplinary field involves the integration of botany, anthropology, and related fields to understand the historical and social context of plant use. Ethnobotanists work with communities to document and preserve traditional knowledge, as well as identify potential medicinal plants and develop sustainable agricultural practices. It is a specialized skill that requires a deep understanding of both plants and culture.
