The final installment of “Jewels of the Jungle” sees Dr. Strobel link up with his old friend Pablo Rojas, a microbiologist from Mexico. Rojas wants to learn how Dr. Strobel identifies plants with medicinal value. But as we know, Dr. Strobel’s methods can’t be reduced to a textbook explanation. The only way to discover how Dr. Strobel does his work is to join him in the field. Rojas and Strobel plunge into the jungles of Madidi, Bolivia. With Rojas watching Strobel’s every move, can the student learn from the master?
