Hello My Happy People,
In today's episode, I get to chat with Dr. David J Gibson. He is a professor of botany at Southern Illinois University Carbondale and holds a PhD in Plant Biology and is a Fellow of the Royal Society of Biology (FRSB).
David has spent years doing field research in botany and has written a number of articles and books, mostly focusing grasslands and ecology. However, his most recent work focuses on the forensic study of plants as a means to murder and an aid in investigating crimes in fiction and actual criminal cases.
I got to talk to David about his new book, Planting Clues: How Plants Solve Crimes, which is available now at booksellers. He is an incredible wealth of knowledge about forensic botany and where to find a decent pint in Illinois.
