In translation:

'When you loose the traditional  name, you lose the knowledge of the plant because the traditional name describes the functionality of the plant you lose the knowledge of the plant. Therefore, when we loose our Language, we are bound to loose our biodeversity because we can no longer find the value in each plant'. Quote by Dr Jeffery Noro
