The Sierra Club presents Dr. Daniela Shebitz, an ecology professor at Kean University. She will describe her ongoing research in Costa Rica where she works with colleagues and students to study the effects of land management on the distribution of medicinal plants. She works with local people to document the medicinal plants in the tropical wet lowland forests, learning how to harvest, prepare, and use the plants as medicine for ailments ranging from insect bites to cancer. She then studies how land management such as clearing land for pasture is affecting the ecology and distribution of these important plant species.
