Conserve Useful Plant Resources - Wild Medicine: Healing Plants Around the World

Dr. Ina Vandebroek recently shared a Global Call for Action to Conserve Useful Plant Resources and Associated Traditional Knowledge that was developed during a workshop held at the Missouri Botanical Garden.

A perfect introduction to the upcoming exhibition at The New York Botanical Garden about healing plants like the cinchona tree, the source of quinine, which treats malaria, and white willow, whose bark leads to the production of aspirin.
