A request from The Conversation:

I’m the Environment and Energy Editor for The Conversation, and I’m looking for someone who would be interested in writing an article on the harvesting of sassafras in Cambodia to make ecstasy, and the impact it is having on habitat and wildlife in the area. The writer would need to be affiliated with a university or research institution. Our articles are generally about 800 words long and written for a general audience – there is no need for references. There’s some information about who we are here. You can contact me at [email protected]
