ETHNOPHARMACOLOGICAL RELEVANCE Ethnobotany takes into account past uses to be projected into the present and future. Most current ethnobotanical research is focused, especially in industrialised countries, on obtaining information of plant uses from elderly people. Historical ethnobotany is less cultivated, although papers have demonstrated its interest.(More)
BACKGROUND Wild food plants (WFP) have always been consumed by humans, first as the main basis of their food and, since the origins of agriculture, as ingredients of normal diets or as an alternative during situations of scarcity. In contemporary industrialized societies their use is for the most part being abandoned, but they may still play an important(More)
PURPOSE OF THE STUDY Like every actor in transfusion, staff members practising within blood banks of healthcare establishments have to follow a specific initial training and must frequently update their knowledge in blood transfusion. METHODS To address this need from these professionals, the Établissement français du sang Auvergne-Loire set up training(More)
