Ethnobotany of the Home and Hearth

Kew's annual Distinguished Ethnobotanist Lecture by one of ethnobotany's leading teachers and researchers.


All of our ancestors originated in East Africa and spread from there to a series of new environments. In each new location they must have applied a process of learning about plants including ones that would be new to them. A basic question is: How long does it take a community to become “indigenous” to an environment or to develop strong patterns of interaction with a flora? Experiments in Thailand, Hawai`i and Texas will be presented to begin to address this question.
