Annual Ethnobotany Lecture

Local names reveal how enslaved Africans recognized substantial parts of the New World Flora

Prof van Andel’s research focuses on the migration of African peoples and plants to the New World. Her innovative research combines ethnobotany and genomics to help us to understand the largely unwritten migration history of people, plants and the knowledge on how to use them. She received her Phd in Ethnobotany at the National Herbarium of the Netherlands at Utrecht University in 2000, for her research on Medicinal and ritual plant use among Suriname Maroons and their ancestral ethnic groups in Ghana, Benin and Gabon. She then spent 5 years at Utrecht studying Medicinal plants of Suriname: Changes in plant use after migration to the Netherlands, before moving to Naturalis at Leiden to research Plant use of the Motherland-Linking Afro-Caribbean and West African Ethnobotany.
