    'The publication of this issue of the AIATSIS journal, the second for 2003, brings us back to the schedule of issues distributed at mid-year and at the end of each year. This was not intended as a thematic volume, but we are able to present a series of major articles and one research report relating to the topic of Indigenous health, including use of bush foods and medicines. These are introduced by Research Fellow—Health, Dr Graham Henderson, who explores the interrelatedness of these contributions.' (Editorial introduction)
