Important cultural information, along with extensive case studies, provides a clear, authoritative look at the many neglected food sources still being used around the world today.

The book provides comprehensive tables, extensive references, useful photographs, and helpful illustrations to provide clear scientific support as well as opportunities for further thought and study.
