Hello All:
 
I will be going on my first sabbatical , and I would like to do something  with plants. Please advise me.  I want to further some knowledge on plants that I can bring back to my students. I will be taking a whole semester.
 
Thank you for your input.
 
Pale'

We use "Economic Botany:  Plants in Our World" by Simpson and Ogorzaly.
  I think
they're up to the third edition.  Our website is at:
http://www.csdl.tamu.edu/FLORA/biolherb/botn328.htm  From this portal
page you can look at the lab and lecture syllabi, course notes, and lab
overviews.

I'm sorry you're planning a no-lab course.  Watching the students eat
weird fruits, try new legumes, encounter wild plants, make paper, and
cook and serve a plant based dish is what makes this course a joy to
teach. The students also seem to really like the lab.
