The Ethnobotany of the Yanomami Indians
AbstractThe following was originally presented as a keynote ad-
dress to the Building Bridges with Traditional Knowledge
Summit meeting held in Honolulu, Hawai’i in May- June
2001. At the time, controversy over the publication of
Darkness in El Dorado was raging. Sir Ghillean Prance
provided this introduction to a pictoral essay on Yanomani
ethnobotany. It is included here because it presented an
ethnobiologist’s perspective on the controversy as well as
a brief overview of literature on yanomani ethnobotany.
