Masayoshi ShigetaDirector, Professor


shigeta1

I have examined various aspects of African agriculture from the standpoint of human-plant relations (agricultural science, anthropology, ecology, the origins of plant domestication, ethnobotany, and theory of domestication, etc.). I study the challenges faced by communities as they undergo development through the analysis of useful plants as cultural resources that have been cultivated by African peoples and local knowledge related thereto.
