To: SEB students <>

Background: The project Plant use of the Motherland: linking West Africa and Afro-Caribbean Ethnobotany is an initiative by Dr. Tinde van Andel at the National Herbarium of the Netherlands / Leiden University - which in 2010 was granted funding by the Netherlands Organisation for Scientific Research (NWO). Its aims and objectives are constructed around a central research question: how African is Afro-Caribbean plant use?

In order to answer the question above, the proposed research will focus on three aspects: 1. medicinal plants in trade, 2. plants for African and Afro-Caribbean rituals, and 3. plants used for women's health and child care.

Research occurs in Benin in 2011 and in Gabon in 2012.
