The foremost publication of its kind in this field, Economic Botany documents the rich relationship that has always exixted between plants and people around the world, encompassing the past, present, and potential uses of plants. The issues contain original research articles, review articles, book reviews, annotated bibliotheca, notes on economic plants, and instructions to contributors. Established in 1947 by Dr. Edmund J. Fulling, this journal has been the official publication of the Society for Economic Botany since 1959.
