ESA & USSEE 2019 Annual Meeting
August 11 - August 16
The theme of the 2019 joint annual meeting of the Ecological Society of America and the U.S. Society for Ecological Economics is Bridging communities & ecosystems: Inclusion as an ecological imperative.
Environmental scientists, educators, and policy makers are gathering in the Kentucky International Convention Center in Louisville, Kentucky this August 11th through 16th, 2019, for the 104th Annual Meeting of the Ecological Society of America (ESA), co-hosted with the United States Society for Ecological Economics (USSEE). Ecologists from around the world attend the five-day conference, which is expected to host over 2,000 presentations this year.
Meeting plenaries and symposia will explore the meeting theme “Bridging Communities and Ecosystems: Inclusion as an Ecological Imperative.” The ecological community is transforming – inclusive approaches to ecology can build bridges between theory and practice, connect those working in disparate landscapes and disciplines, and incorporate diverse perspectives. Using inclusive approaches supports ecologists and the entire community to articulate socio-environmental connections, address widespread ecosystem change, take advantage of technological advancements and analytical techniques, and engage in interdisciplinary collaborations.
