Etkin and others.

    Simply put, Economic Botany is the interaction of people with plants. Economic botany is closely related to the field of ethnobotany—that word is based on two Greek roots: ethnos (race: people: cultural group) and botanikos (of herbs) and can mean the plant lore of a race or people as well as the study of that lore. Kew's Economic Botany Collection illustrates the extent of human use of plants around the world and also includes specimens of fungi. The huge variety of objects includes artefacts made from plants as well as raw plant materials, such as wood samples. Uses range from food, medicine and utensils, to social activities and clothing.
