We are ethnobiology educators. Our mission is to help other ethnobiology instructors by providing a convenient location to find a variety of instructional materials for ethnobiology courses and curricula. All materials on our links are freely shared using an open-systems philosophy. We welcome additions to this collection, as well as its use.
The OSN project creates links to resources that are stored elsewhere, such as on university web servers and cloud-based resources. This helps ensure that the most recent versions of the materials are available.
Peer reviews are available for many of the resources. We also welcome additions to this set of reviews.

Open Science Network Support
The primary support for the Open Science Network in Ethnobiology has come from the many individuals who have contributed their time, ideas and links to this effort.
We have also have major support, both financial and institutional, from the National Science Foundation, the Society for Economic Botany, the Botanical Research Institute of Texas and the University of Hawai`i.

Ethnobiology Curriculum Guidelines Suggestions
"The Vision and Change in Undergraduate Ethnobiology Education in the U.S.A.: Recommended Curriculum Assessment Guidelines" is based on a call to action from the AAAS for improving science curriculum development of ethnobiology undergraduate education. The following DRAFT document is a work in progress! It is meant to start a conversation among ethnobiology educators. Your feedback is very important to the field of ethnobiology education, so please send any comments and edits to Keri Barfield (firstname.lastname@example.org). The document will be updated on a regular basis.
