Botanic Gardens & Arboreta


This module will examine the models of botanic gardens and arboreta around the world in the modern era, beginning with the Italian Renaissance and proceeding to present-day initiatives. We will look at the scientific, cultural, aesthetic, and ecological purposes of these institutions as well as their changing role in meeting the needs and interests of their times. A major emphasis will be on the influence these places have had on private gardens and on horticulture in general. Students will also consider concerns for the establishment of botanic gardens or arboreta. There will be an optional field trip.
