The 2016 Ethnobiology Conference was just winding down with the banquet, held at the Carriage House in downtown Tucson, Arizona. Janos Wilder, our chef for the evening, cooked some really amazing food. The meal highlighted some native foods; Chef Janos gets many of the ingredients from local gardeners and farmers, some of whom get their supplies from the Native Seeds/SEARCH.
Dr. Steve Wolverton was recently awarded the Society's Student Mentor Award. Students from the SOE have begun an annual tradition of nominating and voting for someone who has inspired young academics in the field in ethnobiology.
The Ethnobiology Ethics series is designed for ethnobiologists to engage in discussions about ethics in the field, classroom and beyond. The purpose is to support a forum that explores our personal dilemmas and conflicts while building a community to help us all navigate the complexities of ethics in ethnobiology and be used as a teaching tool. Posts may be anonymous, as decided by the moderators (website committee). Please engage respectfully.
Starting in 2015, the Society of Ethnobiology began supporting three graduate research fellowships. This series includes short essays profiling the research by each of the fellows during the year that they received funding
