Synopsis:

This book expounds and explores the important contributions traditional and indigenous knowledge make to agriculture, human and animal health, food and nutrition, socioeconomic growth and sustainable development. It is the first book to address these applications of TIK from a natural and applied science perspective. Human civilizations have drawn on this knowledge for thousands of years to solve specific developmental and environmental problems. This book's primary purpose will be to document the employment and potential value of this knowledge in modern settings, providing useful guidance regarding how the global community, down to individual societies, can benefit from such knowledge.
