History of the Section
The Theoretical Ecology Section is one of the most rapidly growing organizations within the Ecological Society of America.
The Section was formed in 1993 to :
1. Foster theoretical research in all areas of ecology;
2. Sponsor meetings for the presentation of results;
3. Foster communication and research collaboration between theoreticians and experimental/field ecologists;
4. Encourage the application of ecological theory to the resolution of societal problems.
The section sponsors social events and symposia at the annual ESA meetings, to facilitate interaction among new and established theoreticians.
To join us, you must first be a member of ESA. You can enroll online here; alternatively, fill out and mail this form, selecting "Theoretical Ecology" in "Section V". Annual membership dues are only $5.

All suitable approaches that yield theoretical insight to ecological phenomena will be considered. Prizes will be awarded on the basis of merit, originality, and clarity of presentation.
To be considered for either the Lotka award or the Volterra award, students (or their advisors) should notify me by 15 July 2012, providing the following information:
