"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."
Professor Andrea Pieroni,
Journal of Ethnobiology and Ethnomedicine
