Abstract: The study of cultivated plants from markets places can reveal interesting information on the interactions and relationships between people and plants. Despite this, cultivated plants are often overlooked and not vouchered in ethnobotanical studies. This article was written for Ethnobotany Research and Applications to reaffirm and to reach a wider audience of colleagues, via an electronic journal, the importance and proper conventions for the collection, maintenance, and use of voucher specimens, particularly for cultivated plants. A case study with Colocasia gigantea (Blume) Hook. f. is presented to help illustrate these points.
