The Theoretical Ecology Section
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.
- Preprint Server.
The Section maintains a preprint server to facilitate communication among
ecologists by providing a mechanism for rapid dissemination of new research
results that are destined to be submitted for publication (i.e., not white
papers or gray literature).
Announcements Email List. The Section maintains an email list for
all official communication to section members. The list is moderated by the
Secretary of the Section, so you will not get email unrelated to the official
business. You will only get occasional announcements. The email list will also be used to hold elections.
Discussion Email List. An unmoderated
email list for the discussion of issues in theoretical ecology has recently
been created by the Section.
- Alfred J. Lotka & Vito Volterra Awards. The Section sponsors
two awards for presentations by students at the Annual Meeting of the ESA: the
Lotka award for the best poster in theoretical ecology, and the Volterra award
for the best talk in theoretical ecology. Sinauer Associates has generously
provided the 2003 Awards $150 each for the best poster and best talk,
redeemable as books published by Sinauer Associates. Contact
Lou Gross by July 7, 2003 to be
consider for either of these prizes.
