Dear Colleagues,

>From 14 to 18 June, 2004, the Society of Economic Botany will hold its 45th annual congress at the University of Kent at Canterbury, in conjunction with the 8th International Congress of the International Society for Ethnopharmacology <>.

Even though official deadline was June 1st, proposals for panels and papers are still welcome.

I propose to organize a panel on ethnobotany/ethnopharmacology in ancient Mediterranean cultures.

Should you be interested in participating, please, do send me at your earliest convenience a proposal including a title, an abstract and a short CV. Transcultural proposals are strongly encouraged.

Waiting for your news, many thanks and best wishes,

Alain TOUWAIDE PhD Washington Academy of Sciences Smithsonian Institution
