Welcome to the Arid Ecology Research Chapter of ESA. We hope that you will be interested enough in what we have to offer to become a part of the group and participate in our activities.

The Arid Ecology Research Chapter was established at the 50th anniversary conference of the Society at ANU, Canberra, in December 2010; one of the first research chapters of ESA.

Who we are

The arid ecology chapter of ESA consists of a group of people who are interested in and do (or have done) research in the deserts. Most of us have a fascination with desert ecology.

The broad aim of the group is to bring together like-minded people and to act as a network and focus for arid zone ecologists. The general feeling is that, although much ecological research is being undertaken in Australia’s deserts, many of us are working in isolation. So the intention is to change that and for the group to act as a way of exchanging ideas and experiences. We are still working out how to do this and the meeting in Alice Springs this year provides an opportunity to explore possibilities.

What we will do

The arid ecology chapter aims to:

  • hold regular themed talk/poster sessions at ESA conferences;
  • hold an informal meeting/mixer at each ESA conference;
  • run occasional one day events independent of the conference;
  • keep in contact via email and other forms of media.
