In this section, your ideas for IYC2011 can start to become reality. Here, you can submit activities for consideration and, after a short review, they will be listed below and any related events will populate the IYC calendar. Activities listed here have a clearly defined theme and describe how, when, and where they will take place.

If you are not quite ready to submit a plan, keep working at it and come back soon. And remember, you can always browse and search this forum to find out what others are planning and even add your own comments to the discussion.

Medicinal Plants: From Crop to Cure? Jacqui Colgate   |   added on Feb 01, 2011    |    United Kingdom Many claims are made for medicinal properties in plants. Some fail the test of scientific analysis. Others provide valuable medicines to combat human disorders and disease. It is not only 'herbal medicines' that rely on plants for their existence. Many conventional medicines are either directly extracted from plants or plants
