The main purpose is to collect information on the use of non-timber forest products (defined as all plant parts used except those for industrial timber exploitation) by two local tribes in the hinterland of Parmaribo (Suriname): the Carib and the Sramakaner tribe. Anthropological and botanical methods will be used such as interviewing, plant collecting and sampling outlined hectare plots.
