The science of  ecology cannot be advanced without improving our understanding of human-environment interactions

The Society for Human Ecology was instrumental in helping to create a Human Ecology Section within the Ecological Society of America (ESA). While that section develops, the SHE website will host information for ESA Human Ecology section members.

Travel Awards

Applied Ecology Section / Human Ecology Section joint travel awards.

The applied and human ecology sections have three travel grants of $500 each to award to students who have had either a paper or a poster accepted for presentation at ESA New Orleans. Apply via this link.

Student Section Members and Early Career – Join Human Ecology Section for free!

The Human Ecology Section has 10 free section memberships for students or early career ecologists who are already paid up members of their section and would like to also be a member of the Human Ecology Section. Email Rob Dyball if you would like to take up this offer.

ESA Diversity Statement

The Ecological Society of America is dedicated to the science and study of ecology. The society welcomes and encourages participation by all individuals regardless of age, culture, ethnicity, gender identity or expression, national origin, physical or mental difference, politics, race, religion, sex, sexual orientation, socio-economic status, or subculture. We strive to cultivate a society built on mentorship, encouragement, tolerance and mutual respect, thereby engendering a welcoming environment for all. Ecologists believe in the need for interdisciplinary study, both in terms of disciplines and participants.  We believe in biodiversity both in terms of ecosystems and membership. We will vigorously and proactively reject prejudice and stereotyping wherever it is encountered in our profession. ESA further promotes diversity in all areas of activity, including fostering diversity in membership, leadership, committees, staff, outreach, public engagement, recruitment, and all other areas of societal activity.

ESA Code of Ethics

Ecologists will not discriminate against others in the course of their work on the basis of gender, sexual orientation, marital status, creed, religion, race, color, national origin, age, economic status, disability, or organizational affiliation.
