This practice was also used in the past to feed humans in the humid part of Spain, where Castanea sativa Miller fruit was the basic human daily carbohydrate resource until a disease (ink illness – caused by the fungus Phytophtora cambivora (Petri) Buis, Phytophtora cinnamomi Rands) ) destroyed most of the trees in the lowlands and in the areas prone to high humidity, which causes that this species was replaced by the potato as the main carbohydrate human resource. This practice has decreased since the mid 19th century.
