International Society of Ethnobiology

The Darrell Posey Fellowship Program is a program of the International Society of Ethnobiology (ISE), a global, collaborative network of individuals and organizations working to preserve vital links between human societies and the natural world. To learn more about the ISE, click here.

Ethnobiologists recognize that indigenous peoples, traditional societies, and local communities are critical to the conservation of biological, cultural and linguistic diversity. Central to our mission is creating a space for dialogue, cooperation, and action across diverse languages, cultures, and worldviews. The ISE strives to channel this work into sound research methods, policies, resource use and decision-making. 

The vision of the ISE is reflected in its Code of Ethics, to which all members are bound.

Membership is open to all individuals, institutions and corporations who endorse the Code of Ethics in their aims and activities.  The benefits of membership include the opportunity to network with ISE members worldwide, a discount on registration fees for the ISE Congress, optional news updates on conferences, scholarships, and career opportunities, and the chance to support, through the membership fee, the ISE’s work on behalf of members worldwide.  To apply for membership of the ISE, click here.
