I work with the Nature Conservancy’s Cool Green Science blog.

We have a post today by Hal Herring about American ginseng digging in Appalachia past and present and the impact that the global market is having on the conservation of this native plant: http://blog.nature.org/science/2016/07/11/ginseng-digging-local-traditions-global-markets-appalachia-medicinal-plants/

I thought that many of you would be interested in this story. Let me know if you have any questions. Thank you!
