The Ecological Society of America (ESA) is a 10 000-member scientific society that focuses on improving communication among ecological scientists and between ecologists and society in general. Membership in the society is open to anyone with an interest in the advancement of ecology. The society has as its goals to (i) promote ecological science by improving communication among ecologists; (ii) raise the public's level of awareness of the importance of ecological science; (iii) increase the resources available for the conduct of ecological science; and (iv) ensure the appropriate use of ecological science in environmental decision making by enhancing communication between the ecological community and policy-makers. The society achieves these goals through annual meetings, the publication of scientific journals and special publications, supporting regional chapters and topic-based sections, and operating a public affairs office.
