Women in Ecology Update
Looking for Women in Science (especially Ecology)? You can find a bunch of them here. For the last few years, we’ve been focusing on female ecologists, especially during Women’s History Month (March) each year. Visit our page devoted to these women for a full list of links.
The good news is we have much more to come! Thanks to the work of Dr. Jean Langenheim, we’ll be bringing you more profiles on women in ecology in the coming months. These latest profiles will feature one of Dr. Langenheim herself, ESA’s second female president and the foundation of our knowledge of Women in Ecology. Find us on Twitter (@ESAhistory, #womeninecology).
If we’ve counted right, ESA’s FIFTEENTH female president, Dr. Laura Huennecke, will take office next month. Twelve of these women have served in the last 30 years; five in the last ten years. Several are featured in microbiographies, but none has a full profile here. We welcome your participation in helping us fill these gaps!
We also have a new collection of photographs we’ll be adding to the above in the near future. Stay tuned!!
