Recollections, reflections, and revelations: personal experiences in ethnobiology


This essay, which is the third in the series -Recollections, Reflections, and Revelations: Ethnobiologists and their First Time in the Field-, is a personal reflection by the researcher on his experience and involvement in kinship and friendship networks while conducting agrobiodiversity research in southern Appalachia, USA. Vignettes are given from moving moments spent with Native spiritual leaders, backcountry mountain people, and local co-collaborators in the research process. The author demonstrates how lasting field friendships have helped lead to groundbreaking ethnoecological research.
