Arthur Haines lives in Western Maine and is an expert in identifying wild plant species in New England. He has also extensively researched how Native Americans used local plants and animals for food, medicine, and utilitarian purposes. Evidence from several disciplines (e.g., anthropology, archeology) has shown that many of the chronic diseases humans suffer from today were not found in indigenous populations. Haines believes observations of how indigenous people interacted with their landscape, combined with modern scientific research of human health, will lead to people living healthier and more fulfilling lives.
