John de la Parra, PhD, Associate, Harvard University Herbarium and Ethnobotanist
Wednesday, May 22, 12:00–2:00pm
Location: Harvard University Herbaria

Historically, plants have provided humans with most of our drugs, fibers, food, dyes, perfumes, building materials, and even musical instruments. But how has this diverse and fascinating field been studied and what has been learned? In fact, for over 100 years, Harvard has played a pivotal role in the study of human-plant interactions, leading to the creation of the field of ethnobotany. In this interactive lecture we will explore the science and history of some of the most important Harvard botanists and explorers through their unique specimens – now housed in the Harvard University Herbarium.

Fee $20 member, $30 nonmember
