Pre-2020 electronic copies of Contributions in Ethnobiology are now Open Access

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. The series’ intended readership is interdisciplinary and includes academics and practitioners in archaeology, biology, cultural anthropology, ecology, geography, and pharmacology, among others.

Titles are available electronically* or in paperback.  Pre-2020 electronic copies (PDF format) are available for free. Paperback copies are available on Amazon.com (see individual book pages for pricing and links to order on Amazon).
