Anna Lewington — botanist
(episodes 7-10)

A writer and educator, Lewington is perhaps best described as a ethnobotanist for her studies of the ways plants are used by various peoples of the world — from the indigenous tribes of the Amazon rainforest to our own modern culture. She graduated from Birmingham University and earned her master's degree from St. Andrews University. Lewington has authored numerous books and articles on the ways humans use plants.
