Medicinal & Economic Plants

Plants are involved in almost everything we consume. Most of our food comes from plants (or from animals that eat those plants), our beverages are based on plants, our clothes are made from plant fibers, our houses are decorated with plants, and many medicines are derived from plants.

A large proportion of our collection is made of plants that have an economic interest, either world-wide, such as coffee, or locally, such as some of our tropical fruit-bearing trees.
