Der Kautschukbaum: Eine Pflanze, die die Welt veränderte!

Ulrich Rösemann


„… In der Provinz Esmeralda (Brasilien) wächst ein Baum Namens Hevea. Wenn man nur einen kleinen Schnitt in seine Rinde macht, tritt daraus eine mächtige Flüssigkeit hervor, die, wenn sie mit Luft in Berührung kommt, härter wird und eine schwarze Farbe annimmt […]

Die Maya nennen das Harz, das sie auf diese Weise gewinnen, Cahutschu. Man spricht es Kautschuk aus und es bedeutet, der Baum, der weint.“

Charles Marie de La Condamine (1745)
