Charles Zidar has a degree from the Ohio State University in Landscape Architecture. He also has a Liberal Studies degree from the University of Oklahoma. His thesis: Sacred Giants: Ethnobotany of the Bombacaceae by the Southern Lowland Maya was the impetus behind the creation of this botanical center of research. This zoological center of research is an offshoot of its sister botanical database. Mr. Zidar originally began his archaeological work on Greek and Roman sites in Greece and Cyprus. For the last decade he has worked in natural history museums completing work in Central and South America. Currently, he works as the Curator of Exhibits for North Carolina State Parks. His focus of research is on the flora and fauna of the ancient Maya and their depictions on Maya ceramics and related art objects.
