Overview

The Bulletin is the official record of the business of the Ecological Society of America. The Bulletin also covers ecological events, news and reports of interest to the ecological community.  Finally, the Bulletin is a place of commentary and opinion on ecological issues which do not require scientific refereeing beyond the section editors and the editor in chief.

Aims and Scope

The Bulletin publishes letters, longer commentaries, and philosophical and methodological items related to the science of ecology. In addition, the Bulletin publishes announcements of meetings; reviews of meetings, of software useful for ecological research and teaching, and of other tools for ecologists; articles about the teaching of ecology; obituaries for deceased members; ecologist winners of major awards; announcements; and reports of official actions by the Society. Previously published items from other sources can be republished in the Bulletin if the contributor obtains permission of the author and the copyright holder and clearly identifies the original publication. Bulletin content is not peer reviewed and, therefore, we do not accept articles that are too technical or specialized to be evaluated for publication without scientific review.
