Fostering research and education on the past, present, and future uses of plants by people.

About SEB

The Society for Economic Botany (SEB) is about people exploring the uses of, and our relationship with plants, cultures and our environment - plants and human affairs. You might well call our research and educational efforts, the science of survival.


SEB Fall Online SymposiumWhile our 2020 Annual Conference had to be postponed until next summer, we know that it is still vitally important that we provide an opportunity for practitioners, researchers, and students at all stages to share their developing work with the ethnobotany and economic botany communities.

Therefore, we are very pleased to announce that we will be hosting a free online symposium on Friday, October 23 from 1-5 pm ET! For your convenience, the titles and sequence of talks will be released a few weeks ahead of the event.
