The Latin American Society of Ethnobiology Code of Ethics (SOLAE-CoE), since its approval during the IV SOLAE conference in October 2015, offers ethical guidelines for all SOLAE members, researchers, indigenous peoples, local communities and organizations to carry out ethnobiological research in Latin America. This CoE represents over three years of work by the Ethics Committee in several countries. Encouraging the participation and collaboration of ethnobiologists, indigenous peoples, local communities, and the private and governmental sectors, the SOLAE-CoE addresses the necessities and realities of the Latin American region. Currently, the Ethics committee is implementing and disseminating the SOLAE-CoE to communities, regional and national organizations, universities and academic societies aiming to reach those interested in ethnobiological research in Latin America. For this session I invite discussion of the SOLAE-CoE and the possibility of starting a collaboration between SOLAE and SoE.
