Articles to be published in our open access, rapid publication journal Ecosphere are embargoed until the day of publication. Please contact the communications officer for help negotiating Ecosphere’s rolling production schedule.

The Centennial meeting will support both retrospective and prospective sessions – looking back at the history of the field of ecology as well as forward into its future. ESA invites press and institutional public information officers to attend.
