There are incredible stories about the how plants have changed the history of mankind.
Today we have a bounty of high quality food of incredible variety. How we acquired this wealth and where it came from is an interesting story. Our human history has been transformed by how we have used and adapted plants for our consumption. A selection of plants will be described by covering their native origin, how they became important in shaping history, and their development into a major food source. Many of the plants described have had far reaching impacts on culture and society in addition to changing diets.
