Ethnobotanical investigation of 'wild' food plants used by rice farmers in Kalasin, Northeast Thailand

Selected results from a study of wild food conducted in several villages in Northeast Thailand. Authors provide a complete botanical inventory of wild food plants from these communities and surrounding areas, including the plants' diversity of growth forms, the different anthropogenic locations were these species grow and their multiple uses. This study shows the remarkable importance of anthropogenic areas in providing wild food plants reflecting the great diversity of species found to contribute to the food and nutritional security of rice farmers in Northeast Thailand.
