MSc Ethnobotany

Ethnobotany is interdisciplinary, involving knowledge of plants and their ecology in the context of their cultural, social and economic significance. This programme combines anthropological studies of human-environment interaction and socio-cultural knowledge of plants in different parts of the world with ecology, conservation science, and biodiversity management. It also covers plant conservation and sustainable management practices, taxonomy, and economic botany. There is a strong emphasis on training in research methods.
