Acorn-eating and balanocultures

Alt

Association member Ian recently did some research on acorn-eating and the 'balanocultures' that used acorns as a food staple.

He states that many techniques for the management of oak stands survive in the literature and remaining oral traditions of Native Americans and other indigenous cultures and an oak-based agro-forestry regime would be very easily implemented in the UK.

His research has been posted in two blogs with the first here and the second here.
