Special Issue: Memoirs and Memory

The memoir, as an inherently personal narrative, is sometimes seen at odds with scholarly writing that demands an objective and detached approach. However, the building block of memoirs is the same as what leads to scientific progress: detailed observations. This special issue of Ethnobiology Letters on Memoirs and Memory seeks to cherish the memoir, whenever written, and is based on a belief that the genre can make important contributions to the field of ethnobiology. What follows here is memoir in the broadest sense, both reflection and a return to the past in the form of unpublished data.
