SciCafe: How Plants Domesticated Humans

Wednesday, December 4, 2013

SciCafe at the American Museum

Humans have domesticated plants and animals for agriculture for thousands of years. What is less well-known is that plants have also had a significant effect on human biology and evolution. Join anthropologist Fatimah Jackson to discuss the fascinating story of co-evolution between plants and humans. Learn how the new field of epigenetics is helping us understand how the interaction of plants and people over time has altered the course of human history. 

The SciCafe Series is proudly sponsored by Judy and Josh Weston.
