Publication Detail

Wild plant collection refers to the collection of medicinal and aromatic plants from their natural habitats. This activity needs to be carried out carefully as it can put pressure on the local resources. Growing populations, the conversion of land to agriculture and a high international demand for some species, can easily lead to habitat losses and to a complete depletion of these resources. This article presents the current situation of different wild plant collection projects in Bosnia-Herzegovina. These follow the “Organic” and “FairWild” certification schemes of the Institute of Market Ecology (IMO), an international third party certification body.
