Abstract
Description
The Folk Taxonomy workshop will focus on practical collection of biological/environmental terms, and determination of effective classification systems. Several field methods will be practiced. Participants are not expected to have any background knowledge in biological or physical sciences in order to develop a reasonable level of confidence and success. Discussions will describe how to develop collaborations with topical experts and how to work effectively with such experts for mutual benefit. Additional topics that will be discussed as time permits are: Intellectual property rights, general/”universal” roles of classification, roles of evidence to support dictionaries, databases for folk taxonomy, likely ethical dilemmas, classifications for specialized categories.
