Difference between.....


Recommended Posts

Ethnozoology and anthrozoology....


Both these disciplines seem almost identical yet completely separate. And a Google search didn't bring much illumination.


Does anyone have any ideas? Thanks in advance.

While I'm not completely certain, the prefix "Ethno-" relates to a community or culture -- a dynamic or difference between multiple humans. The prefix "Anthro-" relates to human-like characteristics. So, in other words, one handles the differences and the other handles the similarities. Hope that helps.
