Ethnobotany is the scientific study of the relationships that exist between peoples and plants, from the perspective of their traditional medicinal, cultural and utilitarian uses. Focusing on the Kumeyaay people of southern California, students will utilize the principles of scientific inquiry and modern plant biology to classify native plants, identify their anatomical structures and phytochemical composition and to relate this information to how plants were woven into the culture of indigenous populations and how plants were used to sustain, heal and protect their people.
The historical uses and modern applications of this knowledge will be evaluated. Local field trips will provide opportunities for identification and scientific study of the plants in their natural habitats.
Course content will include:
- Introduction to the Kumeyaay people of southern California and northern Baja California
- Basic principles of plant biology
- Plant anatomy and development
- Plants as food and medicine
- Plant gathering and harvesting techniques
- Sustainable land management
- Promotion of biodiversity and community health
