Date:6/16/2014

The Ecological Society of America's 99th Annual Meeting "From Oceans to Mountains: It's all Ecology" will meet in Sacramento, Cal., from Sunday evening, August 10, to Friday morning, August 15, at the Sacramento Convention Center.

ESA invites press and institutional public information officers to attend for free (see credential policy below). To apply, please contact ESA Communications Officer Liza Lester directly at llester@esa.org. Qualified members of the media may also register in the press room during the meeting..

Sessions open to the public:

Opening Plenary: "Living in a world where 1+1=4: aligning the law, science, and practice of multiple stressors in marine ecosystems." Margaret Caldwell will open the conference with insights from her work blending law and environmental science as a former chair of the California Coastal Commission, senior consultant to the National Commission on the BP Deepwater Horizon Oil Spill and Offshore Drilling, and current director of the Environmental and Natural Resources Law and Policy Program at Stanford Law School. Sunday, Aug. 10, 5:00 p.m.

Scientific Plenary: "Wearing an ecologist's hat and facing a world of change." Kathy Cottingham of Dartmouth College will demonstrate how an ecological approach can be used to tackle questions in public environmental health. Monday, August. 11, 8:00 a.m.

Recent Advances: "Back to the land? On the paradoxes of certified organics for agricultural transformations." Julie Guthman of UC Santa Cruz believes that organic agriculture is a better way to farm, but she will show how the political economy of certified organic has begun to thwart growth in the sector and is thus working against widespread transitions to more ecologically sound production practices. Wednesday, August 13, 12:15 p.m.

Science Caf: In cooperation with Jared Shaw and the Davis Science Caf, ESA will bring two ecologists to DeVere's Pub in Davis, Cal. Madhusudan Katti of Cal State Fresno and Simon Brandl of James Cook University in Queensland, Australia, will lead conversations about living with nature, from city flamingoes to the underwater villages of the Great Barrier Reef. This event is designed for communion and conviviality with members of the greater Sacramento-Davis community. Wednesday, August 13, 5:30 pm.

A preliminary program is online. Popular themes include:

  • Ecological effects of climate change
  • California drought
  • Food, fisheries, & agriculture
  • Urban ecology & sustainability
  • Invasive species
  • Endangered species
  • Conservation & ecosystem management
  • Forests & fire
