About this book

Language: Spanish

This book deals with the ethnobotanical uses of oaks, cork oaks, holly oaks and Portuguese oaks, from a historical and European perspective, integrating the various branches of knowledge, both natural and social sciences.
 
Based on this omnipresence of oaks in all European territories, the author wanted to give a personal view of the meaning of the oaks for humans, from many vantage points and areas of knowledge, always with a view to its closest geographical and cultural surroundings, Galicia. This is an area rich in ancestral traditions, typical of the archaism of the Iberian northwest, for which it is known not in the Iberian Peninsula but in the whole of Europe.

Summary in Spanish:
Este libro trata de los usos etnobotánicos de los robles, alcornoques y encinas, desde una perspectiva histórica y europea, integrando las diversas ramas del saber, tanto ciencias naturales como sociales.

A partir de esta omnipresencia de las quercus en todos los territorios europeos, el autor ha querido dar una visión personal del significado de los robles para el común de los hombres, desde muchos puntos de vista y áreas del conocimiento, siempre con la vista puesta en su entorno geográfico y cultural más cercano, Galicia, territorio rico en ancestrales tradiciones, propias del arcaísmo del noroeste ibérico, que se proyecta no sólo a la Península Ibérica sino a Europa.
