Summary of deposit
This project documents threatened traditional ecological knowledge in five Totonac communities in northern Puebla State, Mexico. The research teams are headed by two experienced linguistic fieldworkers with long-term commitments to the communities. They will build a database of plant nomenclature, classification and use, backed up by voucher specimens and digital photographs. A team of native experts will discuss each plant in digital recordings; all texts will be transcribed and translated. Results will be integrated with Amith's NSF/NEH and ELDP-supported work in five Nahuat communities. Collaboration with expert taxonomists ensures accurate identification to species of all documented plants.
