Explorer Classroom | Maria Fadiman

Maria works with the human/environmental aspect of conservation. She was named one of National Geographic’s Emerging Explorers in 2006. Her research focuses on ethnobotany, the study of the relationship between people and plants. Maria works primarily in rural areas with indigenous people and subsistence agriculturalists. The majority of her research is in the rainforests of Latin America, mostly Ecuador. Projects include researching oil exploration in the Amazon; organic coffee production in the Galápagos; Mayan weavers in the Yucatan and medicinal plants with the Lacandon people in Chiapas, Mexico. She has explored alternative livelihoods in Africa for those who depend on tree poaching from the national parks in the savanna; explored house construction from natural materials in the Philippines and studied the Maori utilization of the Kauri tree in New Zealand.
