The Society for Economic Botany

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.

Meetings


On behalf of the International Society of Ethnobiology and the Society for Economic Botany, we are announcing the postponement of this summer’s Jamaica meeting to 2021.

Our next annual meeting will take place at the University of the West Indies in Mona, Jamaica where we will meet jointly with the International Society for Ethnobiology. Our theme will be, "Out of Many, One People: Biocultural Diversity Across Borders". We are planning to organize symposia according to 7 of the 17 UN Sustainable Development Goals.

We hope to be able to confirm a new date for the conference very soon and will send out further notification via email and social media, but do please also check the conference website often for further announcements.
