New Paper Published on the Wild Vegetables Foraging in Northern Cyprus

The Mediterranean diet is recognized by UNESCO as an Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity, and it was previously reported that wild vegetables form a hidden element of this diet. In a recent study, in where TRIBE members Zbynek Polesny and Naji Sulaiman take part, we discuss the wild plants foraging by the Maronite diaspora in Northern Cyprus. The study has been published in Plants (Q1 in JCR; IF: 4.658) in the special issue Historical Ethnobotany: Interpreting the Old Records.

New Article Published on the Nexus between Traditional Foraging and its Sustainability

Plant foraging has been an important human ecological phenomenon since ancient times. However, the sustainability dimension of foraging is still largely unexplored. Our team, represented by Naji Sulaiman and Zbynek Polesny, have contributed to a newly published paper titled "The nexus between traditional foraging and its sustainability: a qualitative assessment among a few selected Eurasian case studies". The paper is published in the journal of Environment, Development and Sustainability (Springer, IF: 4.080); in a special issue in honour of David Pimentel (1925 – 2019). The study is built on data collected from coastal Syria, North Pakistan, SW Ukraine and Estonia.
