Travel Award

Applied Ecology Section & Human Ecology Section Joint Travel Award for Students Members

The Human Ecology Section offers a travel award each year to support student-members participation in ESA Meetings. If you are a student and have had any kind of presentation accepted for the ESA conference that relates broadly to Applied or Human Ecology, you are invited to apply to have your registration covered for you. We will strive to provide support to a diverse group of applicants, including candidates from historically underrepresented groups in science.

Application for the 2021 Student Travel Award is now closed

2021 ESA Virtual Meeting

 

The science of ecology can be advanced only if we improve our understanding of human-environment interactions. As ecologists, we approach the world as an interactive system, with feedback loops between the biosphere, atmosphere, oceans, and land. Human Ecologists emphasize the inclusion of human communities as an integrated and integral part of Earth’s ecosystems. We closely and carefully listen to local voices – how do they perceive their environment? How do they interact with their environment? What further understanding do they seek?

Human Ecology  Workshops

Human Ecology Section Awarded ESA Section Development Grant

We are very pleased to have been awarded a Section Development Grant for 2019. Titled the Human Dimensions Collaborative, the grant-funded workshop held on Saturday, 10th August (i.e. the day before 2019 ESA commences).

The workshop is designed to bring together several ESA sections that are oriented around the human dimensions of environmental problems and the unjust distribution of their burdens. There is a unique opportunity for these sections to collaborate to share their respective areas of expertise and help ESA as we share the pursuit of a range of our association’s strategic goals.

These include ESA’s mission goals of ‘promoting ecological science by improving communication among members and ensuring the ‘appropriate use of ecological science in environmental decision making by enhancing communication between the ecological community and policymakers’.
