Bringing the Food Back Home: Plants, Algae, Lichens and Fungi in the Food Traditions of Indigenous Cascadia

"My speciality is ethnobotany ... Much of my work is field-oriented, interviewing knowledgeable elders of Aboriginal communities in many parts of British Columbia, to document traditional uses, names, and perceptions of plants. Analyzing these data and comparing information from different regions and cultural groups has been a major focus of my research."
