ESA Governing Board approves change in ESA Code of Ethics

On May 21, 2013, at the recommendation of the Ecology for a New Generation Committee and the suggestion of language by the Professional Ethics and Appeals Committee, the ESA Governing Board approved the addition of Principle #7  to the ESA Code of Ethics:

7. Ecologists will, to the extent practicable, engage meaningfully with the communities in which they practice to promote teaching, learning and an understanding of their study; broaden the participation of underrepresented groups; enhance local infrastructure for research and education; and disseminate results broadly to benefit the local community.
