About Holly Harris

I work with people and wild plants, specialising in coastal and marine habitats. I have conducted field work on the indigenous knowledge and practices of medicinal plant use in Guyana and on wild edible plant foods in the UK and Europe. I am currently completing a PhD in Ethnobotany examining folk and commercial wild edible plant harvesting. I approach this from a multidisciplinary perspective.
