Abstract:This paper on plants used for craft making is based on a study undertaken in three parishes adjacent to Kibale National Park (Karole district, western Uganda) in 1996-1998. The ethnobotanical methods used in the study involved informal conversations, field excursions, semi-structured interviews, ranking and scoring and market surveys. The paper discusses plant species used for handicrafts; user groups and gender involvement; factors influencing the collection and use of craft materials; and products made from the various species. Attention is also paid to the importance of a sustainable use of the resources. Bibliogr. [ASC Leiden abstract]
