The Society of Ethnobiology gathers and disseminates knowledge of ethnobiology and fosters ongoing appreciation for the richness of ethnobiology worldwide. Tour Ethnobiology Around the World for a taste of the diversity of ethnobiological research and an appreciation of the rich relationships between people and their biological worlds.

Our members include academic and non-academic individuals who share a binding interest in exploring human-biological relationships, from the very distant past to the immediate present.

The Journal of Ethnobiology, Ethnobiology Contributions, and Ethnobiology Letters are multidisciplinary peer-reviewed periodicals representing research in archaeology, geography, systematics, population biology, ecology, mathematical biology, cultural anthropology, pharmacology, nutrition, conservation, and sustainable development.

We'd love to meet you at our annual Ethnobiology Conference!
