The Theoretical Ecology Section

About the Section

The Theoretical Ecology Section is one of the most rapidly growing organizations within the Ecological Society of America.
The Section was formed in 1993 to:

    1. 1. Foster theoretical research in all areas of ecology;
    1. 2. Sponsor meetings for the presentation of results;
    1. 3. Foster communication and research collaboration between theoreticians and experimental/field ecologists;
    1. 4. Encourage the application of ecological theory to the resolution of societal problems.

The section sponsors a mixer and best student talk and poster awards at the annual ESA meetings, as well as a best paper award, to facilitate interaction among new and established theoreticians. The section also runs a wiki with job postings and teaching resources here.

To join us, you must first be a member of ESA. You can enroll online here, selecting “Theoretical Ecology” in “Section V”.
