Resumen

MUINO, Walter Alejandro. ETHNOBOTANICAL STUDY OF FOOD PLANTS USED BY FARMERS FROM THE NORTHWESTERN ARGENTINIAN LA PAMPA REGION. Chungará (Arica) [online]. 2012, vol.44, n.3, pp.389-400. ISSN 0717-7356.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0717-73562012000300003.

This study documents the plants consumed by the modern inhabitants of the Northwestern area of La Pampa (Argentina), creole farmers descended from colonial immigrant. An ethnobiological approach is applied which highlights the presence and role of locally available plants. As such, the vernacular names of species, traditional meals and drinks, and forms of exploitation were recorded, examining the persistence of use and its changes through time. A total of 62 plant taxa associated with the diet of this population was recorded, contributing new knowledge of local ethnobotany and that of arid zones in the Americas.

Palabras clave : Traditional knowledge; diet; ethnobotany; collection practices; agriculture.
