Plant Profiles - Ethnobotany

camasBrowse an online series of native plant profiles started by Environmental Studies students. These profiles were created by ES 421 students as a part of their final plant project. Students were instructed to create items related to either technology, medicine, or nutrition out of local plant species. During this process, students were required to create informative profiles for all plant species used, a short presentation on the creation process, followed by a reflective essay. The plant profiles of all species used can be found below. Included are the respective names (common, scientific, and Hulkemel'em), cautions, botanical descriptions, local habitat, ethnobotanical applications, and locations on UVic campus.
