Our membership includes researchers and scholars in the fields of ethnobiology, students initiating ethnobiological studies, and interested people from all walks of life. We provide a forum for discussion and publication of research in historical and contemporary ecological knowledge, paleoethnobiology, environmental history and prehistory, cultural and political ecology, and ethnography of natural products.
