Portrait of James Chamberlain

A major part of this research was to provide field experience to young people to encourage them to pursue careers in science. On one field trip, we had students from five different universities. Some students had never camped or been in a forest. At the end of one trip, a young man came up to me and said, “This experience has changed my career vision and goals.” He went on to get an advanced degree in the study of ethnobotany—the study of how people interact with plants.
