What's In a Name? Defining Who We Are and What We Do.

This poster presentation presents the results of the 2016 Society for Economic Botany membership survey. 192 current and former members responded to a range of questions regarding their research interests and the effectiveness of the society across a number of domains. A particular focus of the survey was on the term "economic botany" and whether it adequately captured the diversity of our present membership. Other questions dealt with publications, strategies for outreach and future conference planning. While there was a range of responses, there was also some consensus on ways to move forward and increase membership.
