The ESEB is an academic society that brings together over 1200 evolutionary biologists from Europe and the rest of the world - researchers, academic teachers, students, as well as journalists and other persons interested in evolution. By joining you become part of this academic community.

The biennial ESEB Congress is one of the largest scientific meetings in broadly defined evolutionary biology. Members are entitled to substantially reduced registration fees. The society also offers travel grants to support participation of student members from economically disadvantaged countries.

Membership of ESEB includes a personal subscription the Society's journal, the Journal of Evolutionary Biology. The journal has an Open Access option, and authors who are members of the Society benefit from a 50 % discount on the Open Access fee for their papers. Members are also entitled to a 25 % discount on all books published by Wiley-Blackwell as well as other promotional offers.

The Society supports young researchers, e.g. by sponsoring the annual meeting of PhD students in evolutionary biology, and by awarding the John Maynard Smith Prize to outstanding young evolutionary biologists. It also supports outreach initiatives aiming at popularizing evolutionary biology to general public and countering creationism, especially in non English-speaking countries. By joining, you can support these initiatives.

The ESEB is a platform of integration for evolutionary biologists from different countries. Endorsement and logistic support of the ESEB is particularly important for local evolutionary biologists in countries with little tradition and few researchers in evolution. As an active member you could also receive endorsement and support for evolution-related initiatives in your country.

Membership dues are paid for two calender years and include a personal subscription to the Journal of Evolutionary Biology. All types of members get access to the online version of the journal (via Wiley Interscience); full and student members also receive the printed journal. Student membership is limited to a maximum of 4 years.
