Take away a better understanding of plant family patterns and what they indicate regarding identification and ethnobotanical application of exotic invasive plants for food, medicine and beauty. A big focus of this class led by Ethnobiologist Marc Williams will make clear the opportunities to employ these plants effectively, making use of a problem by turning it into a resource. Through a slide presentation and close up examination of collected plant material, we will become more familiar with some of the prime exotic invasive plants occurring in the southeastern U.S. as well as a more general exotic invasive plant list of over 150 useful species from the region.
