Members of the media and freelance writers are invited to attend the Ecological Society of America's 2004 Annual Meeting to be held in Portland, Oregon, August 1-6, 2004. The theme for the meeting is "Lessons of Lewis & Clark: Ecological Exploration of Inhabited Landscapes." Close to 4,000 scientists are expected to attend.
The five-and-a-half day program will include a full agenda of symposia, oral and paper presentations, several scientific fieldtrips and workshops, and a large exhibit hall.
Portland is on its way to being the largest meeting in the Society's history. Researchers from all fifty US states, Mexico, Canada, Australia, Germany, Chile and seventeen other nations will fill the city and surrounding areas. Scientists from several government agencies, including the US Geological Survey, US Forest Service and state fish and wildlife agencies, will also present research at the meeting.

- Forest Canopies as Participants in Ecosystem and Landscape Ecology
- Parasites and Host Social Organization: Ecological and Evolutionary Perspectives
