Editorial Reviews

Economic Botany - William Balée

"The Yanomami are a nonstate people of some 20,000 living in numerous villages of Brazilian and Venezuelan Amazonia who speak several dialects of what seems to be one language isolate. Various works on their ethnography, demography, health, and territory already exist. This beautifully illustrated book constitutes a very valuable contribution to their ethnobotany."
