We are volunteers who are working together because we believe that our combined effort is more than the sum of our individual contributions. We invite you to join us.

Joining OSN

The Open Science Network in Ethnobiology is composed primarily of faculty members and students who are interested in sharing curriculum resources and strengthening the discipline of ethnobiology. We are all volunteers.

We welcome your participation and hope you will consider joining the Network. There are several benefits for joining OSN:

OSN leads by creating networks. This includes virtual and in-person networks for ethnobiologists from different disciplines and places.
–OSN benefits beginning and established faculty. We do this through our networks and specifically by sharing curricula, experiences and information.
OSN promotes ethnobiology. By considering ethnobiology as the “science of survival’, OSN hopes to make others aware of the importance of this science.

In particular, we are interested in finding new resources that fit within our scope (see the Resources section).

As individuals, we attend a number of virtual, regional, national and international conferences and meetings. These events provide us an opportunity to spread the word about the Open Science Network in Ethnobiology. We welcome contributions to our list of conferences and meetings. And we encourage anyone interested in the OSN to participate in these activities.

Please visit our Conference Meeting Calendar for a full list of events, including regularly attended Annual Meetings. More information about Virtual Meetings hosted by OSN is also available.
