The Ecological Society of America (ESA) is a professional society whose aims are to:
- promote ecological science by improving communication among ecologists;
- raise the public’s level of awareness of the importance of ecological science;
- increase the resources available for the conduct of ecological science; and
- ensure the appropriate use of ecological science in environmental decision making by enhancing communication between the ecological community and policy-makers.
Ecology is the scientific discipline that is concerned with the relationships between organisms and their past, present, and future environments. These relationships include physiological responses of individuals, structure and dynamics of populations, interactions among species, organization of biological communities, and processing of energy and matter in ecosystems.
The ESA holds a regular conference and this coming meeting will be held in New Orleans (5-10 August). The 2018 meeting’s theme is: Extreme events, ecosystem resilience and human well-being
Although the call for abstracts for spoken presentations and workshops is close, the meeting will accept late breaking poster submissions until May 3rd .
Early registration for the meeting closes on June 14th.
