International Society for Ethnopharmacology

Welcome to the website of the International Society for Ethnopharmacology. We are a small, collaborative, interdisciplinary group of scientists anthropologists, pharmacists, pharmacologists, ethnobotanists, phytochemists, and others all fascinated by the study of the global use of medicines. We are particularly concerned about understanding the medicinal uses of plants in traditional societies. We seek to understand the cultural and the pharmacological dimensions of human medicinal plant use everywhere. We welcome you to our site, and welcome you to join with us in this exciting study. At this site, you can learn about membership in the society, the society journal, our newsletter and conferences.
