The plant species Salvia hispanica L. has a long history of plant-human interaction. This study defines the human-selected morphological characters associated with domestication of S. hispanica and presents a review of ethnobotanical and historical information pertaining to the human selection forces that resulted in changes in morphology. The compiled ethnobotanical information for S. hispanica is applied to the framework of the hypothetical ecological-evolutionary continuum of plant-human interactions, highlighting the contributions of ethnobotanical data to our understanding of plant domestication processes.
