We are happy to announce the first in a new series of Ethnobotany Webinars from ABC and the Sustainable Herbs Program:

Plants, People & Culture: The Science of Ethnobotany, a conversation with Michael J. Balick and Paul Alan Cox, two of the world’s leading ethnobotanists.

In this webinar, Balick and Cox will talk about their newly released book, Plants, People & Culture: The Science of Ethnobotany; share stories of their fieldwork in remote villages around the world; and discuss the ways our past and our future are deeply intertwined with plants.

Michael Balick is Vice President and Director of the Institute of Economic Botany and Senior Philecology Curator at The New York Botanical Garden. He has studied the relationship between plants, people, and culture in the Amazon Valley, Central and South America, the Middle East, Asia, and Oceania.

Paul Alan Cox, recognized by Time Magazine as a “Hero of Medicine” for his ethnobotanical search for new medicines, was awarded the Goldman Environmental Prize for his conservation efforts with indigenous peoples. He founded the island conservation organization Seacology and is Director of the Brain Chemistry Labs in Jackson Hole, Wyoming.
