ONLINE COURSE More plants as global commodities

Tue 25 January

online

In this course you will explore how key plants and their products, such as tea, maize and rubber, have become global commodities. We will follow the journey from wild species through domestication and cultivation to commercial production. How each plant fits into its eco-system, and how humans have interacted and exploited the plant will be considered. Similarities and differences in the use of these plants between cultures will be discussed. We will also discover how the chemistry of the plant has influenced and impacted its uses in the world today.
