Thanks Nick Kawa, for bringing Michael Pollan’s extensive article on gut ecology in NY Times Magazine to our attention. The article summarizes work from a number of labs researching the role of gut ecology on human health, a topic that has become quite popular in the media and scientific literature, particularly in the context of fecal transplants (e.g. NPR, NY Times, The Lancet Infectious Diseases).

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.
