Event description

Description

Please join us for: An Interdisciplinary Dialogue on the Legal, Social and Scientific Uses of the Kakadu Plum.

The Kakadu plum (Terminalia ferdinandiana) lies at the nexus of important scientific, archaeological, and legal research at UQ. An interdisciplinary dialogue on the multiple ways in which the Kakadu Plum is a valuable Australian botanical resource will be integral to the success of these diverse projects.

The research covers numerous topics, including; the analysis of archaeobotanical remains to determine the antiquity of the use and processing of Kakadu plum by Indigenous Australians; investigation of the fruit itself to determine its nutritional value, the presence of bioactive compounds and its use as a natural food preservative; and the study of the varied roles that intellectual property law plays in the production, distribution and consumption of Kakadu plum products.
