  • Association for Environmental Archaeology (653)

    The Association for Environmental Archaeology was formed in 1979 by a group of environmental archaeologists based at the Institute of Archaeology, University of London, to provide a wide-ranging means of communication between those working in environmental archaeology and related subjects. Members' interests range from anthropology and palaeopathology through parasitology, zooarchaeology and soils to archaeobotany and the study of prehistoric economies. The membership numbers around 400 including university staff, research students, people employed in rescue archaeology and amateurs. About 20% of our members live outside the UK, mostly in Europe, but including the USA and Canada, the Middle East, Far East and Australia. (1/21/2005)

  • Society for the Study of Amphibians and Reptiles (1343)

    SSAR, a not-for-profit organization established to advance research, conservation, and education concerning amphibians and reptiles, was founded in 1958. It is the largest international herpetological society, and is recognized worldwide for having the most diverse program of publications, meetings, and other activities. (11/12/2004)

  • The Society of Canadian Limnolgists (727)

    The Society of Canadian Limnolgists (SCL) is the Canadian Chapter of SIL, the International Association of Theoretical and Applied Limnology. The role of SCL is to offer a Canadian forum to discuss limnological research and issues, to promote aquatic research in Canada, and to support the integration of young Canadian limnologists in the research community. SCL organizes an annual meeting jointly with CCFFR, the Canadian Conference For Fisheries Research. This meeting is held in early January, and its location alternates between the western provinces, Ontario/Québec and the maritimes. SCL has a strong commitment to student participation at these meetings and offers travel awards to offset costs of student attendance. (11/12/2004)

  • Society for Conservation Biology (688)

    International professional organization of over 8000 individuals dedicated to promoting the scientific study of the phenomena that affect the maintenance, loss, and restoration of biological diversity. The membership comprises a wide range of people interested in the conservation and study of biological diversity: resource managers, educators, government and private conservation workers, and students. The Society was formed to develop the scientific and technical means for the protection, maintenance, and restoration of life on Earth: species, ecosystems, and the processes that sustain them (9/19/2004)

  • Biogeosciences.org (794)

    A web site bridging the earth and life sciences, providing a single resource for all things biogeoscience related. Developed by the Geological Society of America (GSA) and supported by a grant from the Biogeosciences program of the National Science Foundation, the site draws from several partnered professional societies and elsewhere to present a collection of biogeoscience resources for all levels of education and interest. Basic biogeoscience links and program resources are available for children, students, undergraduates, and teachers, along with more detailed information on jobs, funding, and opportunities for professionals and principal investigators. The site has comprehensive lists of degree and research programs in biogeoscience, applicable journals and other publications, and a complete database of relevant conferences and meetings. Special sections, symposia, or field trips concerning biogeoscience are also featured. (6/9/2004)

  • Dissertations Initiative for the Advancement of Limnology and Oceanography (DIALOG) program (803)

    An ASLO program for recent Ph.D. recipients in Limnology, Oceanography, and related sciences. The DIALOG Program seeks to reduce the barriers that limit the exchange of information across the biologically oriented aquatic sciences, and to foster interdisciplinary understanding and collaborations. The program includes:

    • Collection and distribution of dissertation abstracts of recent Ph.D. recipients;
    • Symposium to facilitate exchange across institutions, nationalities, and disciplines; and
    • Data base for characterization and tracking of recent Ph.D. recipients.

  • Southern California Association of Marine Invertebrate Taxonomists (SCAMIT) (921)

    SCAMIT was formed in 1982 with the goal of promoting the study of marine invertebrate taxonomy in southern California and developing a regionally standardized taxonomy. To accomplish this, SCAMIT provides a regular monthly forum to address problems in taxonomy, organizes taxonomic workshops, and maintains a reference collection and library of taxonomic literature. SCAMlT's activities contribute to the scientific value of the many surveys of marine benthic invertebrate communities conducted in southern California by assuring standardized taxonomy and compatibility between various taxonomic data sets.
