The Ecological Society of America hosted a gathering of the Presidents
of the Ecological Societies of the Americas, in August, 2003. The
meeting was attended by representatives of ecological societies and
organizations representing ecologists from Argentina, Canada, Chile,
Mexico, United States and Venezuela. The objective of this one-day
meeting was to explore possibilities for collaboration among ecological
societies of the Americas and to seek novel ways to address common
goals, needs, and emerging challenges.
A key agreement of the meeting was to form a Federation of the
Ecological Societies of the Americas.
Ecological societies from the Americas wishing to be part of the
Federation should contact
Catherine O'Riordan, Executive Director
