BIOL 233 - Plants and People


Semester Hours: Three
The dependence of humans and animal species on plants for purposes of food, fuel, fiber, medicines and other raw material has been a common standard throughout the centuries. The global challenges that we face again underscore the need to understand and utilize our plant resources judiciously to sustain our economies and our environment. This class is designed to cover aspects of plant morphology, growth and development as a basis to survey the plant kingdom and the specific uses of specific plant species. Specific aspects of economic botany such as plants used as grains, root, stem and leaf crops, those used to provide oils, spices, perfumes, medicines, psychoactive drugs, fiber and wood will be covered. This class will be useful to those interested in plant science research at any level as well as those interested in plants for agribusiness purposes.
