The meeting theme is, "Ecology at Multiple Scales." Over 4,000 ecological scientists, researchers, educators, administrators, and policy-makers from around the globe are expected to attend.

The meeting's opening evening will feature a Public Plenary Address by Cristian Samper, Director of the Smithsonian Museum of Natural History. On Monday, August 8th, the Opening Plenary will feature a 90th anniversary celebration of ESA, featuring past presidents of ESA reflecting on the Society's historical milestones. Also featured in the Opening Plenary: May Berenbaum, well known entomologist and recipient of ESA's prestigious MacArthur award.

Scientific presentation highlights include:

  • Linking ecological processes and environmental impacts across scales: Coastal ecology and energy development in the Caspian Sea and Gulf of Mexico
  • Mercury cycles: Sources, mass balances, bioaccumulation, and options to manage affected systems
  • Ecological effects of the Chernobyl disaster: Genes to ecosystems
  • Comparative ecology of tropical trees: Linking physiology to dynamics and distribution
  • Ecological processes important in the responses of bird populations to environmental change driven by agriculture
  • Linking local, regional and global ecological changes across densely populated landscapes

Several special sessions have been incorporated into the program, focusing on major ecological issues. They include: Restoration of Mesopotamian Marshes of Iraq, Delivering on the promise of ecological science to improve land management: Ecological site descriptions, and two sessions on the Millennium Ecosystem Assessment.

The five-and-a half-day program will include 4 plenary sessi
