The Appalachian Center for Ethnobotanical Studies along with Tai Sophia Institute has recently published two plant monographs based on the UpS 'at-risk' list: Black Cohosh and Goldenseal.The following plant monographs are soon to be published (False Unicorn, Stone root, Wild Yam, Boneset, American Ginseng, Blood root, Slippery Elm, Wild Indigo, and Pipsissewa)
The Mission of The Appalachian Plant Monographs project is:
- To preserve Appalachian culture by documenting the traditional uses of native Appalachian plants. This aspect distinguishes this project from many other monographs.
- To encourage the cultivation of economically important plants and insure sustainability by providing resources for growers and harvesters. To provide resources for students, practitioners, researchers, and the general public.
- To integrate indigenous knowledge with modern research by providing access to both aspects of understanding.
