Ethnomedicine: Caribbean Cures - 174BOT379
Globalization may be a current buzzword, but people and plants have always been on the move. Dr. Ina Vandebroek, Assistant Curator of Economic Botany and Caribbean Program Director, shares insights from her research on native and historically- introduced plants of Jamaica and the Dominican Republic that are still widely used as medicine and food, both in the islands and right here in the Bronx. Experience a new world of sensorial botany by tasting plants and preparing aromatic teas valued by Caribbean peoples around the world.
