Detailed Description

*Purpose:* This year's workshop will continue the conversation between the
disciplines of linguistics and ethnobiology by sharing knowledge and skills
through hands-on training sessions and presentations from invited speakers.
In addition, participants will engage critically with the stages of
planning a collaborative research project, incorporating the topics
discussed throughout the workshop.

*Outcome: *By the end of the workshop, each participant will have an
understanding of each discipline and how their methods and goals intersect
with each other, the ethical implications of collaborative research, how to
deal with data, and how to analyse data in ways that answer questions
impossible to answer from within only one discipline.

*Content:* The workshop will include hands-on training in ethics, planning
an interdisciplinary research project, audio recording and linguistic
transcription, collecting ethnobotanical data, voucher specimen
preparation, as well as data access and management. In between the
interactive training sessions there will be presentations from invited
speakers and a participatory presentation with the Ethnoornithology World
Please contact us at ethnobiology at with any questions!
