Registration open for the Ecological Society of America's 2012 Annual Meeting in Portland, Ore.

Registration is now open for the Ecological Society of America's (ESA) 97th Annual Meeting on August 5-10, 2012, in Portland, Oregon. The meeting is expected to draw more than 4,300 scientists, policy makers, educators and concerned citizens to share emerging research.

Jane Lubchenco, an Oregon State marine ecologist and head of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, will open the six day meeting with a keynote address on Sunday, August 5th, at 5:00 p.m. A co-founder of the Aldo Leopold Leadership Program, the Communication Partnership for Science and the Sea, and Climate Central, Lubchenco has long been a champion of public participation in science, and of scientists' participation in public discourse.

"Guru of old growth" Jerry F. Franklin, professor of Forest Resources at the University of Washington, and ethno-botanist Nancy Turner of the University of Victoria will also present plenary lectures.

Preliminary meeting information is available at Look for symposia and oral presentation titles to be posted in May.
