Abstract

The concept of ethnobotany represents the study of plants used, conserved and managed by the local people. It deals with local people knowledge of a particular use of plants in gastronomical, medical, religious, and other purposes. In this paper, special attention will be paid to the use of traditional ethnobotany knowledge in local gastronomy and its effect to tourism development.

In the last 10 years, different studies were conducted in terms of collecting as much information as possible about the relationship between traditional use of plants with gastronomic offer and the increase of tourism development. The idea of this study is to record the traditional food and local plant resources of a particular interest for sustainable small-scale eco- or rural tourism activities.

Ethnobotany is a rapidly growing scientific topic and it is predominantly linked to economic botany: on the one hand to determine the potential economic value of various plants and, on the other, to make a link with a relatively new aspect of eco-tourism market.
