I am enjoying this course. Find the Ethnobotany as well as the history of Ethnobotany (on Wikipedia) very interesting. For me it is also a part/guide of herbalism.

For some reason I can’t comment on Unit 4 of Module 1. We’ll here’s my answer to the Assignment. I really like Ethnobotony.
Modern day technology allows us to define chemical compounds in plants, giving understanding of the effects of a plant and how it is important for medicine to have an entourage effect. Singling out compounds in the plant can be poisonous on it’s own. It is important to understand how the compounds interact with each other and people, to be able to safely make medicine and use the properties correctly.
Etnobotony helps guide us in herbal usage and provide evidence of traditional medicine and practices being important even today. I see it a lot, that modern culture don’t believe that herbs have healing properties, but forget that pharmaceuticals actually came from herbs themselves.

I am also very interested in Ethnobotany as I think that is what drew me to herbalism in the first place. Our relationship with our plant siblings.

I am really enjoying this course so far. I tend to focus more on the sections with recipes and names, etc. but understand the need to learn proper terminology, and why we use what we use.
