FAU Research in Action: The Relationship Between Plants and People

Thursday, February 21, 2019

The Boca Library has partnered with Florida Atlantic University's Division of Research to present a new discussion series, "FAU Research in Action." By looking at the connection between culture and the natural world, we can learn how to conserve knowledge and forests in a meaningful way. Join Maria Fadiman, Ph.D., associate professor of geosciences, as she takes you through a journey into the rainforests of Latin America, the savannas of Africa and into the Bahamas where she worked with a National Geographic team. You’ll learn how people across the planet are utilizing plants for medicine, food, music, construction, rituals and other innovative ways. Share your ideas for plant inspired research and help FAU address new and exciting challenges.
