I'm working on a new non-majors "Plants and People" course and looking 
for texts.  The best I've found so far is Levetin and McMahon, "Plants 
and Society" but I am not terribly excited about it.  The course is more 
of an economic botany class, rather than straight botany.  Any other ideas?

Also, where might innovative ideas in botany education be published? 
 Are there any journals you use, or are aware of, where articles on 
botany education are published?
