&i;`[The Flowering of Man] provides a sweeping vision of an entire world view - that of a culture based on intensive use of a vast variety of both cultivated and wild plants....a major milestone in ethnobotany. Both authors have worked more than thirty years in highland Chiapas. Both are leading experts on the area: Breedlove on the botany, Laughlin on the language. They have worked together to produce what may be the most complete ethnobotany (to date) for any community in the world.'&o; Economic Botany
&i;`"A monumental work, thirty years in the making, representing twenty-six Zinacantec communities, and containing botanical descriptions and information on 2686 Tzotzil named generics, specifics, and varietals....Approximately two-thirds of the content is on the entries for the flora, organized into sections on `vines', `trees', and `plants'....An impressively detailed publication and an invaluable contribution to ethnobotany.'&o; Journal of Linguistic Anthropology
