Journal of Ethnobiology and Ethnomedicine invites research articles and reviews focusing on the inextricable relationships between human cultures and nature/universe, Traditional Environmental/Ecological Knowledge (TEK), and folk medical knowledge systems, as well as the relevance of these for environmental, public health and nutritional policies, especially in developing and emerging countries.

Editor's quote

Professor Andrea Pieroni, Editor-in-Chief, Journal of Ethnobiology and Ethnomedicine

"Ethnobiology and ethnomedicine are exciting and revolutionary multidisciplinary fields at the center of many current debates on culturally appropriate management of the biodiversity and the human and animal health.

The Journal of Ethnobiology and Ethnomedicine is a very timely initiative to foster a common platform devoted to scientists, practitioners, environmentalists, and policy makers for investigating cultural perceptions and cognition of the natural world and of disease and illness, as well as their meaning for comprehensive environmental and public health policies."
