Ethnobotany Seminar
1 credit, meeting W 5-5:50 pm


Ethnobotany is the study of the use of plants by people and culture. The word is derived from the Greek word ethnos ('ethnic group') and the English botany ('the study of plants'). This seminar course provides an introduction to the field and its history through a limited number of lectures, periodic literature readings and weekly discussions, and independent student research that results in a capstone oral and poster presentation on an ethnobotanical topic chosen by each student through consultation with his or her professor.
