Dr Felice Wyndham is EWA Ethno-biologist. My recent focus has been to investigate the intersections of life-histories and longue durée landscape change, particularly with respect to food systems transformations. Ethnobiology told through personal narratives in community contexts, specifically Rarámuri/Tarahumara (Mexico) and Ayoreo (Paraguay), brings to light webs of connectedness to place as well as enmeshed networks of global processes and history. It is important to me to work closely with community-defined priorities, which has led to several research projects involving trans-generational teaching, and education both formal and informal. Human ecology and ecosystems theory and application have been an ongoing interest, and I continue to collaborate and publish with a working group on these topics. My regions of expertise are the Americas (South, Middle and North), with most extensive experience in Northwest Mexico and the Southern Cone of South America and abiding interest in Southwestern US, Alaskan, Hawaiian, and California land and sea-scapes.
