In Brazilian Amazonia, the price of manioc flour has risen significantly in the past year. Mostly recently, the prices of tomatoes has also skyrocketed due in large part to losses linked to irregular climatic patterns.

I'm a cultural and environmental anthropologist with interests in biodiversity management and smallholder agriculture in rural Amazonia. I've conducted research on agrobiodiversity management, anthropogenic soils, and community-based conservation. Currently, I'm also interested in the ways that farmers rely upon social networks, local ecological knowledge, and agrobiodiversity management to contend with the uncertainties of global climate change.
