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.
