AO. Challenges of bounding science using nation-state boundaries.

AO: Osseo-Asare notes the difficulty of limiting science/knowledge within the scale of a nation-state: “When environments and ethnic groups overlap, and plants and people move over time, who is to say that Country X somehow owns Plant Y? Policy shifts at the international level also raise questions about the extent to which national scientists will need to acknowledge local claims to plant data within African countries in their quest for patents” (201)
