What is so special about the CUBG is that it is backed up by a chemical trail: a virtual trail that provides quick access to a detailed, web-based description of selected flowers and trees and further identifies some plant ingredients, chemical compounds, that play a role in and have been extracted for human uses. Drugs, dyes, and natural food additives are just a few examples. To explore the featured plants and substances, I recently published a post and some visual navigation tools:
- List of chemical plant ingredients in my post A walk through plant chemistry,
- Plant Life board with pictures and links for the chemical trail plants: pinterest.com/axeleratio/plant-life/,
- Learn chemistry while traveling board with the molecular structure of phytochemicals: pinterest.com/axeleratio/learn-chemistry-while-traveling/.
Question: Are there other gardens of this kind? See ResearchGate Question.
