Ethnobotany Studies Alert! I Just Passed the first doctoral exam!/Alerta de Estudios Etnobotánicos! Acabo de superar el primer examen del doctorado!

I’m very happy to report that I just got word from Prof. Cindi Katz, the head of my department, Earth & Environmental Sciences (EES) – Geography, at the CUNY Graduate Center, that I have passed my first exam, and I am now a level 2 student!

Next week to Colombia where I present at the IV Latin American/V Colombia Ethnobiology Congress, and hang out with dear organizers to set up my field work for next summer.  I’m really looking forward to it, see the cool graphics below –
