My course is similarly titled to many others that have been stated 
earlier in this thread, "Plants, People, and the Environment."

Environment in the title refers to the coverage of the role of plants 
and agriculture in shaping our environment (the atmosphere, soil, 
nutrient cycling) and the prospect of plant biotechnology in 
addressing some aspects of the current environmental crisis.
