Totonac ethnobotany


This project began in 2015 with efforts to collect and determine to genus or species the plants included in the Upper Necaxa Totonac Dictionary, and later expanded to include collections in a total of 10 Totonac communities under a project funded by the ELDP. Vouchers of plants identified by consultants were collected, photographed, and prepared with the assistance of botanists, while recording of the plant names and other knoweldge of uses and ecology of the plant specimens were made by the linguists working with the team.
