    Abstract For centuries, plants have been used as a source of food, medicine and material culture. The focus of modern research and technology developments on crop plants, however, has narrowed the number of utilizable crop plants. This study reports the cultural food significance of neglected and underutilized crop plants in southwest Oromia, Ethiopia.
