“Use and traditional management of Anadenanthera colubrina (Vell) Brenan in the semi-arid region of northeastern Brazil”. 
J Ethnobiol Ethnomed. 2006 Jan 19;2(1):6.
ABSTRACT: The use and management of "angico" (Anadenanthera colubrina (Vell.) Brenan) by a rural community in northeastern Brazil was examined. By employing different techniques of data collection and population structure analysis, it was determined that this species had multiple uses within the local community (especially as timber and for other wood products), and that local management of this species is based on simple maintenance and harvesting of individuals in agroforest homegardens plots. The study of the population structure of this tree species indicated that management and conservation strategies must include the participation of the local community.
