The gardens we went to showed the fascinating dual roles that plants play in different countries—what is ornamental in Nigeria could be edible in Uganda—and left a lasting impression. The variety in plant utilizes across locales started my interest and extended how I might interpret the mind boggling connections among networks and their surroundings. These edifying encounters have extended my insight as well as lighted an enthusiasm for investigating the complex associations among individuals and biological systems”
