Description

Throughout the years, many undergraduate students from around the country have had the opportunity to perform ethnobotanical, biochemical, and medical anthropology research in Trujillo, Peru with guidance from Dr. Douglas Sharon (University of California, Berkeley) and Dr. Rainer Bussmann (Missouri Botanical Garden). Since 2010, Linfield College students have also had the opportunity to do research with the additional guidance of Dr. Thomas Love (Linfield Anthropology). In the summer of 2018, I had the privilege of working on this project with four other students conducting household surveys in Huanchaco, a peri-rural community, and Huanchaquito, a traditional fishing community, to learn about their knowledge and use of medicinal plants.
