We encourage poster submissions. Posters are a great way to communicate about your research and can foster immediate in-depth conversations. Posters will be posted in prominent places at the conference venue and we will designate a particular time when people can stand by their posters to discuss their research with conference participants.

Last year the poster award was such a huge success that we will again be offering an award for the BEST ETHNOBIOLOGY POSTER. The winner will receive a cash prize of $300.

The award is open to all poster submissions (student and non-student, single or multiple authored). A panel of judges will be assessing the posters; the award will be announced at the end of the conference. The decision will be based on both content and graphic appeal.

Note that student poster submissions are also eligible for the Barbara Lawrence Award ($500).

The Best Ethnobiology Poster Award was given to Heather Thakar from Temple University. Her poster title was "Food & Fertility in Prehistoric California: A Case-study of Risk-Reducing Foraging Behavior and Population Growth from Santa Cruz Island, California." Heather's research in the Northern Channel Islands of California reveals fascinating information about the links between fertility, population growth, and food acquisition. Congratulations to Heather on her poster!
