Are Borders More Important than Geographical Distance? The Wild Food Ethnobotany of the Boykos and its Overlap with that of the Bukovinian Hutsuls in Western Ukraine
The main finding was that the difference between the wild food ethnobotany of the Boykos and Hutsuls was far more restricted than the ethnobotsanical disparity that was recorded between Bukovinian Hutsul living on the two sides of the state border (created seven decades ago) between Ukraine and Romania.
Borders as Crossroads: The Diverging Routes of Herbal Knowledge of Romanians Living on the Romanian and Ukrainian Sides of Bukovina
It is argued that the 50 years during which Ukrainian Bukovina was part of the USSR resulted in the integration of standard pan-Soviet elements as evidenced by several plant uses common among the groups living in Ukraine yet not among Hutsuls and Romanians living in Romania.
Knowledge transmission patterns at the border: ethnobotany of Hutsuls living in the Carpathian Mountains of Bukovina (SW Ukraine and NE Romania)
This cross-border research reveals that despite a common cultural background, socio-political scenarios have impacted Hutsul ethnobotanical knowledge and its transmission patterns.

Medicinal ethnobotany of wild plants: a cross-cultural comparison around Georgia-Turkey border, the Western Lesser Caucasus
Patterns of medicinal plant knowledge among studied communities appear to be connected with more than one cultural factor, in particular ethnolinguistic diversity, cultural background, and access to multilingual written folk and scientific literature, or probably a combination of various factors.

Local knowledge of medicinal plants and wild food plants among Tatars and Romanians in Dobruja (South-East Romania)
Only approximately half of the plants and one-third of the plant reports were common to both Tatars and Romanians, demonstrating that the ethnobotanies of the two communities have remained somewhat different, despite the common history that these communities have shared over many centuries within the same social and environmental space.
An ethnobotanical study on home gardens in a Transylvanian Hungarian Csángó village (Romania)
The aim of the study was to summarize the occurrence and diversity of food, medicinal, ornamental and fodder plants, as well as herbal home remedies applied on a daily basis in Csinód, a village in the Eastern Carpathian Mountains.
A cross-cultural comparison of folk plant uses among Albanians, Bosniaks, Gorani and Turks living in south Kosovo
Comparison of the data recorded among the Albanian, Bosniak/Gorani, and Turkish communities indicated a less herbophilic attitude of the Albanians, while most quoted taxa were quoted by all three communities, thus suggesting a hybrid character of the Kosovar plant knowledge.
An ethnobotanical study among Albanians and Aromanians living in the Rraicë and Mokra areas of Eastern Albania
Almost half of the plant uses reported by Aromanians were not recorded among Albanians, thus suggesting divergent ethnobotanical pathways, perhaps due to the different religious faiths of the two communities, which have prevented intermarriage over the last few centuries.

Isolated, but transnational: the glocal nature of Waldensian ethnobotany, Western Alps, NW Italy
The great resilience of plant knowledge among Waldensians may be the result of the long isolation and history of marginalisation that this group has faced during the last few centuries, although their ethnobotany present trans-national elements.
