Announcing our book-length on-line publication series, "Contributions in Ethnobiology"

Contributions in Ethnobiology is a peer-reviewed monograph series published electronically by the Society of Ethnobiology. The series is a forum for publishing original book-length research on past or present relationships of human societies with their biological worlds. Contributions are data-rich, state-of-the-art studies, which may be either single-authored or edited volumes with multiple authors. On-line publication allows freedom from traditional publishing restraints on specialist topics, unusual length, and number of figures.
