Update: February 2013 With this map we try to keep track of the planet’s ecological societies. In this updated version of the world map we have added the (as of February 12, 2013) 106 IPBES members (brown borders). Since last newsletter an early-career initiative has been launched within the New Zealand Ecological Society.
Key: Green – national ecological society, Yellow – multinational ecological society, Stripes – Ecological society with formal early career initiative.
Update: June 2012 In this updated version of the world map we have added DIVERSITAS Nodes (black borders and triangles) to illustrate the global coverage of this biodiversity science organization. Since the last newsletter was sent out, an ecological society has been re-established in Denmark (and, to our joy, with an early-career representative on the board!). Other recent society initiatives include Norway and Iceland.
Key: Green - national ecological society, Yellow - multinational ecological society, Stripes - Ecological society with formal early career initiative.
The map is intended to raise awareness of the geographical extent of ecological societies and early-career initiatives. The map does not necessarily reflect the true state of ecological societies but is based on the best information available to us. Please notify us if you notice any errors so we can correct them.
