Ecological Society of America (ESA)
The Ecological Society of America (ESA) is a nonpartisan, nonprofit organization of scientists founded in 1915 to promote ecological science by improving communication among ecologists, raise the public's level of awareness of the importance of ecological science, increase the resources available for the conduct of ecological science, and ensure the appropriate use of ecological science in environmental decision making by enhancing communication between the ecological community and policy-makers. ESA's over 10,000 members conduct research, teach, and use ecological science to address environmental issues, and the ESA produces a suite of publications, from peer-reviewed journals to newsletters, fact sheets and teaching resources.
In collaboration with the Union of Concerned Scientists, the ESA Science Office prepared a series of reports on the regional ecological impacts of climate change. Electronic (PDF) versions of these reports are available for free; and paper copies can be purchased at ESA's e-Store.
