Interdisciplinary Botany


This homework assignment is designed to give you practice integrating the Natural Sciences perspective with your own (inter)disciplinary perspective.

In order to keep this assignment from being too open-ended, the specific Natural Sciences topic to be addressed is that of Botany (it is Spring, after all, and inspiration for the specific botany topic you would like to address can be found all around you).

Think of a question you find interesting concerning botany and address that topic in a way that ties in to your interdisciplinary interests.

Below are some possible examples of how this assignment could be completed based on the disciplinary interests of the people in this class.

You do not have to follow these examples. Feel free to generate your own botany-related topics and/or approaches to the topic.
