ESA regularly receives meeting announcements from other organizations and meetings that ESA co-sponsors. As a service to our members and the general public, we post these announcements on our website. If your organization would like to post an announcement, please contact christi@esa.org

Announcements should include: Date of Meeting (month date, year), Name of Organization Hosting the Meeting, Contact Person Name, Position, Phone Number, Email and the Meeting Website. ESA reserves the right to edit announcements to fit our format. ESA’s meetings are highlighted *

Odum School of Ecology Computational Modeling Workshops

University of Georgia – The Center for the Ecology of Infectious Diseases (CEID) and Interdisciplinary Disease Ecology Across Scales Training Program (IDEAS)

Contact: Janice Flory
Phone: 706-542-1930
E-mail: IDEAS@uga.edu
Meeting Website (Online Program Guide): https://t.uga.edu/4JU

We are pleased to announce that registration is open for the 2019 CEID-IDEAS Computational Modeling Workshops, taking place Monday May 13th to Friday May 17th at the Odum School of Ecology at the University of Georgia (Athens, GA).  Comprised of two back-to-back modules, this series introduces students, faculty, and healthcare professionals to the field of quantitative modeling as it relates to the dynamics of infectious diseases.  Through a combination of lecture and laboratory practicums, participants will synthesize the advanced techniques of statistics, computer science, and mathematics to help them frame biological questions in mathematical parlance, embark on analyses of these models, and work with a diverse array of data using advanced computational methods. Upon completion, participants should be able to:

  • Write code in R to perform research analysis
  • Create reproducible workflows
  • Extend understanding through independent study using web-based resources
  • Express hypotheses as mathematical models
  • Manipulate and analyze diverse data types

Participants can register for one or both modules:

Module 1:
Introduction to Scientific Programming Workshop I.
Introduction to Scientific Programming being held May 13th -15th, and

Module 2:
Modeling Infectious Diseases
held May 15th – 17th.


Full details, including registration, cost, schedule, and accommodations can be found in the online program guide (https://t.uga.edu/4JU)

United States Society of Ecological Economics

Advancing the Integration of Ecosystem Services and Livelihood Adaptation.

Presented by Dr. Elizabeth G King
Wednesday December 5th, 1pm EST

The concept of ecosystem services has become a cornerstone in dialogues and policy making in conservation, natural resource management, and sustainable development. Most methods for ascribing values to the benefits provided by ecosystems are based on a conceptual “flow model” in which natural capital yields services, which in turn yield valued benefits to people. However, in sectors such as rural development and urban planning, there are increasingly vocal criticisms of outcomes that arise when decisions based on optimizing ecosystem services are put in to practice.

In this talk, I will examine two limitations of mainstream conceptualizations of ecosystem service flows, and some methodological tools and cutting edge research from other disciplines that can help overcome those limitations. The first limitation is a failure to account for the range of capabilities that people need in order to co-create ecosystem services, and the second is a failure to formally consider how the benefits and values are distributed among members and segments of society. Principles from Sustainable Livelihood Analysis and the nascent field of adaptation studies can complement ecosystem service analyses and valuations to give more holistic and realistic understandings of ecosystem service flows and who benefits from them.

Pollinator Week

Round image with a bee on a flower.

Eleven years ago the U.S. Senate’s unanimous approval and designation of a week in June as “National Pollinator Week” marked a necessary step toward addressing the urgent issue of declining pollinator populations. Pollinator Week has now grown into an international celebration of the valuable ecosystem services provided by bees, birds, butterflies, bats and beetles.

The Pollinator Partnership is proud to announce that June 18-24, 2018 has been designated National Pollinator Week.

12th Clonal Plant Symposium - bowdoin.edu

Please join us this summer for the 12th Clonal Plant Symposium in Brunswick, Maine, the next in a series of workshops begun 30 years ago to advance scientific understanding of the physiology, ecology, and evolution of clonal growth in plants. Clonal growth is a common form of asexual reproduction …
