Enthobotany is so cool.

I"m home with a lousy cold today, but I just wanted to share this with you guys:

Following up on the discussion (in the comments section of the "galinsoga" post) of poisonous plants and their potential uses, I found this very interesting article.

Someday maybe I'll go back to school to study enthnobotany. :-)

It seems as if you are already studying ethnobotany, on your own, which is wonderful.

Hope you feel better, Kate.

You're sick? Ick. I like the article by the way. It fits in perfectly with things of being thinking about as of late.

Thanks Barb, Ellie and Jo, I am feeling better now. I just want to say that Nyquil tastes like a mix of melted cherry lollipops and gasoline, but it sure does the trick! :-)

Dear Barbarafromcalifornia

Seems you are confusing ethnobotany (the study of plants used by humans of different cultures) and enthobotany (the study of alkaloid-producing [medicinal or poisonous] plants and their potential uses).
