Gesine Bradacs; Email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Location of the Chapter: University Roma Tre, Dept. of Environmental Biology, Rome, Italy
Description of the Chapter: The chapter primarily targets young ethnobiologists with a reference to Europe, either through origin, place of residence or work. It constitutes a central platform for relevant information concerning funding and employment opportunities in terms of grant deadlines or open positions and links to suitable search engines. Additionally it is meant to serve as a discussion forum for ideas, the exchange of research experiences and collaboration building. Especially members with teaching experience are encouraged to share materials and advice in order to reach a certain scientific standard for the ethnobiological education as a long-term goal. All members are invited to attend annual meetings of the chapter and of the parent organization. The Chapter meetings will be held as “camping-meetings” to keep costs to a minimum and to reach a maximum of flexibility as well as teambuilding.

Contact Persons: email@example.com
Location of the Chapter: University of Wisconsin, Steven Point
Description of the Chapter: This student run organization is to inform and promote ethnobiology to the UWSP student body and local community. This organization engages members in hands-on activities and allows them to explore and bridge together the various disciplines that are involved in ethnobiological studies. Previous activities have included making tinctures, collecting specimens and creating natural dyed fabrics, and participating in sustainability events on campus. In addition, this organization collectively manages the UWSP Ethnobotanical Garden, which is a courtyard devoted to native useful plants mostly in our region. This group also represents and aides in the success of the ethnobotany minor offered at this university. For further information, contact firstname.lastname@example.org or Diego Hernandez directly at email@example.com. We love to hear/share new ideas and events that are related to our studies!
