      Hi All,
      Thought this might be of interest to some.

      To me aromatic plants seem a great opportunity to gain a lively hood
      from pfaf style systems.

      *Cropwatch Threatened Aromatic Plants Used in the Aroma & Cosmetic
      Industries v 1.04 Feb 2008*
      **
      The fourth update of Cropwatch's Threatened Species used in the Aroma
      Industry is out & can be found at
      http://www.cropwatch.org/v%201.04.pdf Its scope is now broadened to
      cover both the Aroma & Cosmetic Industries. For those of you who have
      not browsed the 81-page plus feature, it is divided into two parts. The
      first is a brief summary of topics relevant to aromatic plant
      conservation, and the second larger part is an alphabetical listing of
      the threatened aromatic species, covering geographic distribution, IUCN
      status and any listings by other conservation organisations, with notes
      about the materials themselves. This new version also contains an
      updated section on unethical animal products used in cosmetics - such as
      oils derived from shark-livers, green turtles and emus. We have also
      slightly extended the biopiracy section to cover the activities of a US
      company which has copyrighted a Peruvian natural product used as a
      foodstuff and in indigenous medicine, as previously first reported in
      Herbalgram.
