Indigenous people from Amazonia and GranChaco are not living apart from national or international market,but they take part in it according to their own patterns, which sometimesappear quite surprising.

Plants and trees are their main source of income. Itdoes not mean nevertheless that they are managed as simple commodities or as mereobjects of knowledge. Rather, they are often viewed as partakers of largerelational networks, bringing together human people as well as animal andvegetal beings : in many cases, plants and animals are even considered astrue Persons.

That was the reason why we decided to organize asymposium with a clear emphasis on this relational dimension. We present hereeight selected papers from this panel. The topics are diverse, but all of themenlighten how such an approach opens new ways for the analysis, concerningeveryday management of plants and ethnobotanical knowledge, as well ascommoditisation, which is anything but a question of strictly economicrationality.
