You ought to check out Tales of the Shaman's Apprentice, by Plotkin, 
which is in the stores now.  There are lots of suggestive leads in this 
book.  You could contact Plotkin himself for that matter.  He was at 
Harvard and maybe still is.  You could also contact Lisa Conte or her 
colleagues at Shaman Pharaceuticals in Northern California for current leads.
