Come and learn more about the British Ecological Society

The British Ecological Society is a thriving learned society of 6000 members in 120 countries. We are an innovative and inclusive community and have unique membership opportunities for everyone involved in ecology. Belong to our global ecological community and enjoy access to our journals, member-only grants, training and mentoring opportunities, and much more.

We are home to six journals that publish high-impact ecological research, including our new journal, People and Nature, led by Editor in Chief Kevin Gaston and Lead Editors Kai Chan, Rob Fish, Rosie Hails and Cecily Maller. People and Nature is a broad-scope, open access journal, publishing work from across research areas exploring relationships between humans and nature. Ask us about our call for papers on consuming wildlife: managing the demand for wildlife products.
