Investigating Ecological Legacies in Amazonian Forests

Proposal for “Investigating Ecological Legacies in Amazonian Forests’ submitted to NSF’s HEGS (Human-Environment and Geographical Sciences) Program.  Dollar Amount: $ 117, 832 (over three years). Kavoori and Weatherford will be part of a research team conducting an ethnoecological survey of plants connected with species found in the paleorecord in Ecuador. They will develop communication strategies to allow information from the legacy study to inform both tourists and indigenous guides about the new discoveries of biocultural diversity conservation. They will coordinate with environmental communicators for a social media campaign and will organize and direct a focused workshop on ecological legacies and Amazonian conservation.
