SEB Student Cafe - January 2024 Flyer

The SEB Student Cafes are a chance for students to learn and discuss specific areas of ethnobotany with experts whose careers focus on that area. These discussions are organized by the SEB Student Committee, and their goal is to broaden students’ perspectives and understanding of ethnobotanical work, to better inform their own research and career trajectory, and to build a professional network within their areas of interest.

January 2024 SEB Student Cafe: Episode 3 – Decolonization & Botany

  • Special Speaker: Dr. Amy Litt

    Dr. Amy Litt researches plant diversity and evolution specifically within Manzanitas. Manzanitas are a fire-adapted chaparral clade (vegetation dominated by evergreen shrubs that mostly have small, thick, waxy leaves) in the California Floristic Province. As a professor at UCR, she has also worked to include aspects of decolonization within her course curriculum in courses that introduce plant diversity and evolution.
