Flowering of Man: A Tzotzil Botany of Zinacantan (abr. ed.)
Dennis E. Breedlove (au); Robert M. Laughlin (au)
This magnificent work depicts a rich, dynamic identification of a Mayan people with their botanical landscape, from the Spanish conquest to the globalizing present. The authors blend science, empiricism, & literary art to show that nothing in the complex milieu of the Tzotzil is merely biological or cultural. A monumental work, 30 years in the making, representing 26 Zinacantec communities, & containing botanical descriptions & information on 2,686 Tzotzil named generics, specifics, & varietals. Approximately two-thirds of the content is on the entries for the flora, organized into sections on ‘vines’, ‘trees’, & ‘plants’. An invaluable contribution to ethnobotany. Illustrations.
