Ethnobiologists' stories from around the World

A regular blog post of the International Emerging Ethnobiologists' Network

Stories help us understand the past, the present and the future and sharing stories builds communities. Our community is one of ethnobiologists from around the world. We will compile of a story collection here. Our goal is to keep our community united and continue to build community through a collection of stories. We think this site will also be helpful for people thinking about a career in ethnobiology, and would like to learn how others found this path.

1. Dr. Gail Wagner, a mentor from the 2012 pre-congress workshop, suggested a great example of how botany professionals have presented their stories, click here to see. These stories on this site are longer than we've asked for, but they provide a good point of reference. 

2. Or, how about interviewing someone influential in your career and and sharing their story on this blog?
