This interlude reflects on the anthropologist’s effort to collect information about the fauna and flora utilized by forager-cultivator people. It relates the author’s experience of foragers’ reluctance to list what they gather and their inconsistent naming of those species (not unlike other Asian foragers). It also considers the botanists to whom she turns for taxonomic identifications and compares the foragers’ and the botanists’ respective scales of concern.

Keywords:   Field-work method, taxonomy, flora, scales of concern [scalar biases, hunter-gatherers, South Asian foragers, plural life]
