20-22 juli 2011. MSc student Sarina Veldman visits the British Museum to inspect 99 herbarium sheets that may contain the oldest plant collections from Suriname, probably collected by Johannes de Haen in the period 1687-1689. Veldman is now studying the obscure Surinamese Hermann Herbarium, stored at the treasure room of the National Herbarium of the Netherlands (NCB Naturalis) at Leiden University. These 48 plants are probably collected by Hendrik Meyer, of whom very little is known so far.

Dinsdag 24 november is mijn onderzoeksvoorstel "Plant use of the Motherland: Linking West African and Afro-Caribbean Ethnobotany" gehonoreerd binnen de NWO Vernieuwingsimpuls.
Met deze Vidi subsidie zal ik met twee promovendi vijf jaar onderzoek gaan doen in Suriname, Ghana, Benin en Gabon en een vergelijking maken tussen medicinaal en magisch plantgebruik bij de Surinaamse Marrons en de landen van hun Afrikaanse voorouders.

Plantgebruik uit moeder Afrika
Dr. T.R. (Tinde) van Andel (v) 16-05-1967, UL - Nationaal Herbarium
Afrikaanse slaven in Suriname moesten in korte tijd planten uit een onbekend oerwoud leren kennen om te kunnen overleven. Dit onderzoekt bekijkt welke medicinale en magische planten de Afro-Surinamers van de Indianen hebben geleerd en welke ze herkenden uit Ghana, Bénin en Gabon (West-Afrika).
