He founded the island conservation organization Seacology and is Director of the Brain Chemistry Labs in Jackson Hole, Wyoming.

Reviews

'Balick and Cox's new edition of Plants, People, and Culture is both a superb ethnobotanical resource for students of the discipline, and a thoroughly good read for any- and everybody interested in knowing more about the ancient and enduring relationship between plants and people. Balick and Cox continue to set the standard for what a great ethnobotanical text should be, and this 2nd edition can only enhance Plants, People, and Culture's iconic status.'

-- Dr Nigel Chaffey, Botany One
