Abstract: This short article puts forth the thesis that traditional knowledge in any ethnic group is dynamic and not static. Progress or loss in TK can be caused by any natural or anthropogenic factors. Ethnobotanical TK is based on biodiversity around the folk and damage to vegetal cover can result in loss of TK, and naturalisation of some exotics can add to TK. Positive action can be taken to retard the pace of loss of TK and to promote expansion of TK. Studies on dynamism can indicate future trends and where necessary, ameliorative measures.
