  16. Campesino Culture • One of the most neglected areas of study today is the use of plants by the campesinos, caboclos, mestizos, peasants, or whatever the group of poor, traditional farmers is called locally (Hill People in Appalachia). • They often have an extensive knowledge of plants and of management of the environment in which they live. • They are in contact with modern foods and medicines, but often can’t afford them, and so by necessity are required to widely use local food plants and to maintain large plant pharmacopeias and to use native plant remedies.
