The organizers wish to attract 300-500 participants, representing all sectors with an interest in the intersection of global trade and the environment – the academic research community, government agencies, nongovernmental organizations, and the private sector. Students will have the opportunity to present papers and posters and begin to form the personal relationships essential to lasting international collaboration.

ESA, a professional society of 9,000 ecologists from 80 countries, has called for a series of actions to globalize access to ecological knowledge. These actions include efforts to foster international collaboration and stimulate communication among environmental researchers, students, managers, and practitioners. In 2003, ESA cofounded the Federation of the Americas, which brings together ecological societies and related organizations from a number of Latin American countries. ESA has also founded chapters in Mexico and Canada. Ecology in an Era of Globalization, the first major fruit of these collaborations, is being organized by a program committee cochaired by Dr. José Sarukhán of the National University of Mexico, and Dr. Jeff Herrick of the U.S. Department of Agriculture.
