Databases specifically for ethnobiology purposes.
The “Human Side of Ethnobiology” and has a wealth of information that is available for use in an ethnobiology curriculum. These are stories about the people who have done (and are doing!) ethnobiological research. There are web bios, video interviews and presentations of exciting research findings. Many books have been written which have ethnobiology as a theme, often describing the adventures of an ethnobiological explorer.
Case studies are a powerful mechanism for learning. This link provides information on how to create case studies and it provides some examples of case studies which are related to ethnobiology.
Scientific societies are especially important for ethnobiologists because they provide opportunities for interdisciplinary conversations across the divides of geography, culture, and academic disciplines. Some of the societies have working groups which are dedicated to the instructional aspects of ethnobiology.
Ethnobiology-related Journals & NGO’s
Non-Government Organizations (NGOs) are non-profit groups that have a defined mission. Some of these NGOs are important partners in supporting ethnobiological research and outreach.
Ethical Aspects of Ethnobiology
Ethics is the moral behavior which we use when we interact with other people, cultures, religions, places and a variety of other situations. It is very important that everyone abide by widely accepted standards of behavior. Considerable effort has gone into the development of ethical standards in the context of ethnobiology. Maintaining ethical standards requires training and specific projects must be subjected to careful review.
Databases housed at herbaria dedicated to the preservation of plants. Collections, specimens, images, scientific names and generic names are just small examples of the data publicly available.
Botanical Gardens, Herbaria and Botanical Libraries
These three types of institutions are closely linked. In some cases, all three functions exist within the same institution. These institutions are a key component of ethnobiology. They provide resources which are vital to research, education and public understanding.
Biographies, Autobiographies and Related Materials
There are a number of exciting and informative books about ethnobiologists. These often reveal the difficulties and thrills of doing ethnobiological research. Other related readings could include a wide-range of material from those used directly in ethnobotany and ethnobiology courses to research-related material to material for the enrichment of ethnobiology.
Institutions and Libraries with Photographs, Botanical Illustrations and Videos
A vast amount of media already exists and is available thanks to institutions collections of rare books, pictures of old flora, plant photos and videos ready to be searched and viewed.
This is a very rich crowd sourced driven resource which contains many Creative Commons images. Information on this link describes ways to use these images through links to the Flickr collection.
This is a dynamic community established to share videos and music. There are many videos that can be incorporated within lessons and presentations. Information on this link provides ways to use videos found within the YouTube repository.
