The Aboriginal ethnobotany of the South East of South Australia region. Part 1: seasonal life and material culture
This paper is the first of a series of three that together provide an account of the Aboriginal ethnobotany of the South East of South Australia. It concerns the influences of the seasonal life upon the cultural use and perception of the flora. The plant uses documented include species of importance to hunter-gatherers and those that Aboriginal people continued to utilise after European settlement. The role of plants in the regional Aboriginal material culture is investigated, drawing from a wide range of sources that includes the fragmented historical record, selected accounts from contiguous areas, and fieldwork conducted in the 1980s and 1990s.
