She is an authority on the conservation and use of breadfruit, conducting horticultural and ethnobotanical studies on this important Pacific staple crop for 30 years. Her extensive fieldwork on over 50 islands in Micronesia, Polynesia, and Melanesia enabled the NTBG to establish the world's largest collection of breadfruit at its Kahanu Garden in Hna, Maui. The Breadfruit Institute was created to promote the conservation and use of breadfruit for food and reforestation. Ian Cole is the Collection Manager/Curator for the Breadfruit Institute.
