Caption: Peruvian bark tree plantation. Engraving of a Peruvian Bark Tree (cinchona) plantation in the Neilgherry Hills, India, published in 1862. In 1630 Peruvian Indians taught French missionaries how to use the bark of the cinchona, from which the antimalarial drug quinine can be extracted. British colonists collected seeds and plants from Ecuador and started these plantations in India. In the foreground are the British Governor of Madras and his staff.
