Ecological Society of America (ESA) Annual Meeting
Biodiversity is the foundation for almost all ecosystem services. The known relationships, though, between biodiversity and material cycling may or may not inform the translation into ecosystem services. As the concept of the ecosystem service is of interest not only to scientists but also to policy makers and stakeholders, understanding the relationship between these three components is essential. The 102nd annual meeting, Aug 6-11, 2017 in Portland, Oregon will support sessions that focus on and explore, in general, how biodiversity is the foundation for many ecosystem services, how ecosystem functioning can translate into ecosystem services, and the role different dimensions of biodiversity play in developing such understanding.
Journalist Travel Grants: This year, ESA is offering four $500 travel grants to help defray the cost of attending the meeting for freelance journalists traveling from outside Portland. Awards will be based on recent clips and a stated intent to pitch news stories from the conference (we don’t require you to pitch any specific stories—the only requirement is that you attend the meeting).
