Ethnobotany

The area I think my exhibition will focus on is Ethnobotany, the relationship between plants and people. I find it fascinating how plants and humans are so interconnected, ‘Trees provide materials for houses; plants provide materials for clothes; and both animals and plants provide us with food. Life is supported by myriad of living things on Earth. The lives of those living things in turn are supported by other living things. Life on this planet is endlessly interconnected.’
Ethnobotany
noun
  1. the scientific study of the traditional knowledge and customs of a people concerning plants and their medical, religious, and other uses.
