The accession consists of two field books that document plant collecting conducted as part of the project "Documentation and Revitalization of the Language and Traditional Ecological Knowledge of the Isthmus Zapotec Community." Collecting occurred in La Ventosa located in the state of Oaxaca in Mexico. The principle investigator was Gabriela Pérez Báez of the Department of Anthropology. Botanical collections and their related documentation were deposited in the Department of Botany and subsequently made available on the National Ethnobotanical Herbarium Online pilot website.
