Dear Friends and Members of United Plant Savers, The time has come to collect new articles for our annual Journal of Medicinal Plant Conservation, to be published in Spring 2016. We invite all of our members and supporters to tell their stories and share their knowledge and experiences in this upcoming issue. If you have participated in research or have stories or news of interest about “At-Risk” or native medicinal plants, please share with our membership.
Theme: Understanding the Supply Chain for At-Risk Plants and the challenges to sustainable harvesting of forest botanicals
The theme for the Spring 2016 Journal of Medicinal Plant Conservation is ‘Understanding the supply Chain for At-Risk Plants’. How do we balance between demand and limited supply of slow-growing wild harvested plants, what about the quality of these plants at time of harvest and the ethics in how we harvest? How do we bring ceremony into our harvesting practices and how do we make choices when buying herbs that we know are endangered. We welcome your submission and we do have a selective process so not all submission will be published but we will try and share them through emails and social media when possible.
