orion 2nd Century Flora & Fauna Query


My current research involves the general area of the Judean wilderness
and particularly the western shore of the Dead Sea (say, En-Gedi to
Sedom)in the period of late 1st to mid 2nd centuries C.E.

Can anyone suggest a resource (person or organization) who might be
responsive to e-mail correspondence on either of these two subjects: 

(1) PaleoBotany.  Interested in the plant life of that area in that
time, including foragable plants and the Balsam (Commiphora) industry;

(2) PaleoZoology (Mammalian). Interested in  specifically which species
of Bat(s) might have roosted in the caves of the wadis (such as Nahal

Any leads would be helpful. Thanks very much.
