This depends, among other things, on the cultural logic of each community and the personal characteristics of the researcher. In ethnobotanical inventories, participant observation has the advantage of recording details not made explicit during formal interviews and allows us to catalog the use of species not recorded by forms and questionnaires, especially those that are little used and that end up being forgotten by informants in interview events. However, not many ethnobotanical studies actually apply the technique as it should in fact be applied.

It is appropriate that in the same ethnobotanical research, different methods of data collection and analysis are used. This combination is called methodological triangulation. Why combine more than one methodological tool to answer the same question? We employ this strategy in order to recognize the virtues and weaknesses of each technique. When we use triangulation, we place each method in comparison with another, which maximizes the validity of the results in case they lead to the same conclusions.

We want to remind the reader that before choosing the methods, it is necessary to clearly define what you want to investigate and make appropriate, relevant, and meaningful questions, so that the research contributes to scientific knowledge, and not just more data on the same thing. Thus, the reader should keep in mind that instead of designing a survey from the method, it should be designed based on the question it seeks to answer, so that the method chosen will be the one that has the greatest potential to answer the question.
