Welcome to the Latin American Chapter of the Ecological Society of America!
Our Mission:
The objective of this Chapter shall be to encourage research and education in ecology and its applications within Latin America (Mexico, Central America, South America, and the Caribbean) and to facilitate the participation of Latin American students and scientists in the ESA. The Chapter shall foster communication and development of collaborative links among ecologists by supporting regional scientific meetings, conferences, online seminars (“webinars”), projects, mentorship, workshops and courses. To these ends, the Latin American Chapter will seek collaboration from existing academic and professional organizations in the region. The Latin American Chapter shall be a subdivision of the Ecological Society of America and shall be governed in all of its operations by the Constitution and Bylaws of that Society.
