Welcome to Your Ethnobotany Wiki!


Your group pages should be listed on the left Navigation menu. If you have communicated your species to me, you should already have a page. To find your page, click on your group's page in the Navigation menu and locate the hyperlink on your group page for your species. Click on your species name to get to your page. For both group and individual pages, you can add your information by signing in and clicking on Edit.

Your team’s grade is based on the group main page and group editing and is worth 50 points. I will be assigning points based on:
  • clarity of writing
  • presentation of linking theme(s)
  • hyperlinks to team members’ species pages
  • references and attributions
  • collaborative editing of group and individual pages

Your individual grade is based on your individual species’ webpage and is worth 100 points. I will be assigning points based on:
  • clarity of writing
  • thoroughness of discussion
    • images of the plant including flowers and fruits if possible
    • information about relatives in the same plant family
    • information about geographic distribution of the plant (ideally as a map)
    • information on human use and domestication
    • in-depth information on some additional aspect of the plant (a.k.a. “wild-card topic”, see instructions)
  • proper citations and attributions
