Aboriginal People and Their Plants

Hard cover

This book provides an overview of indigenous relationships to plants in Aboriginal Australia. The book is unique, spanning the gap between botany and indigenous studies. It differs from other published Australian 'bushtucker' overviews by treating the study of plants as a window upon which to delve in Aboriginal culture.

There are insights into Aboriginal culture through:

  • looking at the roles of plants in language, ritual and religion;
  • how Aboriginal people were actively involved in managing their environment;
  • the importance of particular plant species to make food, drink, medicine, narcotics and tools;
  • the future of Aboriginal plant use studies, particularly with respect to the changing Australian landscape.
