This is the flora-fauna lexical material obtained in the course of more general lexical and grammatical fieldwork on languages of central-eastern Mali (Dogon, Songhay, Bangime, Bozo). The spreadsheets in this work, duplicated in xlsx and csv formants, present our flora-fauna lexicons as of early 2019 for many languages of central-eastern Mali, and certain languages of southwestern Burkina Faso. The Malian data is in two spreadsheets (flora, fauna), while the Burkina data is in separate spreadsheets for flora, birds, fish, insects, lizards and snakes, and mammals. Please begin with the “readme” document.

Our project, mainly on Dogon languages of Mali, has branched out to Burkina Faso with emphasis on documentation of the most endangered languages. Tiefo-N was studied on an emergency basis since it was down to two aging competent speakers. For additional comments and links to a reference grammar, see the readme file.
The work on the Bangime language, spoken by the Bangande people, was carried out as part of a larger linguistic fieldwork project focused on Dogon languages. Bangime is confirmed as a language isolate with no demonstrable linguistic relatives—possibly the only such isolate in West Africa.
Jalkunan is an endangered language of the Mande family, spoken in the village cluster of Blédougou in southwestern Burkina Faso. The lexical work complements a published grammar with texts. See the readme for further information.
The search data supports a literature review project on lifestyle therapies for the management of atrial fibrillation. The data included in the dataset are the reproducible search strategies (in docx) and the exported results of all citations from all databases (txt and ris files). These searches and exported result files contain all citations originating from the database searches that were considered for inclusion.

This is a collection of photos of villages located primarily in Central Mali. These photos are primarily of Dogon villages, but there are village photos of other nearby ethnicities, including Bangande, Fulbe, Tuareg, Songay, and Bozo.These photos were taken to document the villages Professor Jeffrey Heath worked in and people he worked with while documenting languages throughout the region. For interactive geographical maps involving these villages see: http://dogonlanguages.org/geography.cfm.
