Thor Hanson - The Triumph of Seeds

Saturday, April 18, 2015 - 12:30pm

Seeds surround us. From our morning coffee to the cotton in our clothes, the spices in our foods, and the cosmetics we use, seeds are part of nearly every aspect of our lives. They give us food and fuels, intoxicants and poisons, oils, dyes, fibers, and spices. Without seeds there would be no bread, rice, beans, corn, or nuts. “They are quite literally the staff of life,” says award-winning conservation biologist Thor Hanson, “the basis of diets, economies, and lifestyles around the globe.”

We live in a world of seeds. From our morning toast to the cotton in our clothes, they are quite literally the stuff and staff of life, supporting diets, economies, and civilizations around the globe. Just as the search for nutmeg and the humble peppercorn drove the Age of Discovery, so did coffee beans help fuel the Enlightenment, and cottonseed help spark the Industrial Revolution.
