In 2007, the ESA Governing Board announced the new Millennium Conference Series, which provides ESA members the opportunity to organize special conferences highlighting emerging, exciting ideas in ecology with the endorsement and support of the Society. The Series is intended to address high-visibility issues of wide interest in the science community.
The first ESA Millennium Conference was held November 9-12, 2009, on “Water-Ecosystem Services, Drought, and Environmental Justice”. The Governing Board committed $50,000 from the Millennium Fund to support this first conference. Please visit the Conference website for more information.
In 2009, the ESA Governing Board re-named the conference series, "Emerging Issues in Ecology Conferences". Please visit the new website for current information.
