What’s New

If you would like to learn of recent additions to People and Plants Online, this is the place to look. The What’s New page, updated regularly, will chart our progress in adding Discussion Papers, People and Plants Handbook issues and Working Papers to the current resources on our website. In addition, you will find the titles of new items posted on the Notice Board.

On occasion, we will tell you what is new in the People and Plants Initiative. For some of the events we organize – workshops, courses, exchanges and research projects – we will provide short summaries produced in collaboration with participants. To complement these perspectives, we will post stories that have appeared in the press about our work. On occasion, we plan to feature longer stories that we write about our field projects in Africa, Asia and the Pacific.

As these announcements and stories become dated, we will transfer them to the Archive of People and Plants Online.

    Yildiz Aumeeruddy-Thomas yildiz@isem.univ-montp2.fr and Alan Hamilton ahamilton@wwfnet.org, editors of the lessons learned section of People and Plants Online, have launched a call for contributions. They are interested in case studies that illustrate specific lessons and general principles that can be drawn from applied ethnobotany. Further description and guidelines of their project are available under lessons learned. The first case study - on Kenyan woodcarving - has now been posted, and new case studies will be appearing in the near future.
