Summary
Examines aspects of Yanyuwa ethnobiology, ethno-ecology and identity; argues that ethnobiological studies are also about "other dimensions of human existance, specifically, that the ordering or classifying of the environment is also intimately associated with attachment to place, ancestors and present day people" [p. 443]
