About this Research Topic
Frontiers in Pharmacology has organized a series of special edition Research Topics, with the goal of highlighting the latest advancements in Ethnopharmacology across the globe, showcasing the academic excellence and high-quality work of internationally recognized researchers.
These collections aim to shed light on the recent progress made across the entire breadth of the Ethnopharmacology field, and reflect on the future challenges faced by researchers across borders.
Manuscripts focusing on the themes are welcomed:
1. Health benefits of Medicinal Plants of Native North, Central, and South America, and the current scientific evidence.
3. Underutilized fruits and foods.
4. Country - or region - specific research, e.g., First Nations in Canada.
5. Successful commercialization of plant products as food, cosmetics or medicine.
6. Sustainable sourcing: wild collection vs. cultivation.
7. Quality control of herbal drugs, food and spices (species with traditional uses).
8. Management and domestication (cultivation) of traditional plants, food and spices.
9. Ethnoecology of traditional medicinal plants.
10. Bioprospecting and fair trade.
12. Resource assessments.
All the manuscripts submitted to the collection will need to fully comply with the Four Pillars of Best Practice in Ethnopharmacology (you can freely download the full version here).). We also expect that the MS follow the standards established in the ConPhyMP statement Front. Pharmacol. 13:953205.
Please note, contributions to the collection are by invitation only. Please inform the Editorial Office at firstname.lastname@example.org once you are prepared to submit.
