A new paper published! Wild Food Plants and Trends in Their Use: From Knowledge and Perceptions to Drivers of Change in West Sumatra, Indonesia.

Wild food plants are often highly nutritious but under-consumed at the same time. A new paper published in the special issue of the journal Foods looked at trends in the use of wild food plants in West Sumatra. The study documented 106 types of wild food plants (85 species) and identified the barriers as well as motivations for the use of these foods among Minangkabau and Mandailing communities.  The drivers of change were discussed and the authors suggested take an integrated approach to their sustainable use, which could improve nutrition while conserving biological and cultural diversity.
