About this book

Ethnobiology is a fascinating science. To understand this vocation it needs to be studied under an evolutionary point of view that is very strong and significant, although this aspect is often poorly approached in the literature. Evolutionary Ethnobiology is the first book to compile and discuss information about evolutionary ethnobiology in English.
