Home garden research differs from much ecological and cultural anthropological research in that it requires an understanding and documentation of cultural, social, and economic factors critical in determining management practices and an understanding and documentation of the role of ecology and individual species' taxonomy and growth requirements (Alcorn 1981, Lamont et al 1999, Jain 2000. Thus, home garden research exists in a multidisciplinary zone among ecology, sociology, anthropology and economics in its goal to assess the many factors influencing one tract of land.…”
