Ecophys Newsgroup

The Physiological Ecology of ESA has developed a newsgroup with the USENET name of bionet.ecology.physiology. This is a moderated newsgroup. You may also post items using the e-mail address To subscribe by e-mail see the Ecophys info page. Current traffic on this list is about 1 message per 6 months. Attachments are not permitted.

Although the newsgroup was initiated by the Physiological Ecology Section, it is, of course, open to everyone.

Newsgroup charter:
Physiological ecology currently has its own section within the Ecological Society of America; it contains over 500 members. Current research and teaching interests of ecophysiologists range from molecular through ecosystem approaches and include all aspects of nutrient and carbon cycles, cell and whole-organism metabolism, life history, evolution, and various modeling endeavors. Environmental physiology is a component of many other related societies, including those in biometeorology, agriculture, and forestry, all of whom benefit from and communicate with this group.

The newsgroup includes topics such as:

  • methodologies and instrumentation for ecophysiology
  • instructional approaches and teaching environmental physiology
  • announcements of meeetings and job openings
  • ways to increase awareness and opportunities in ecophysiology
