Irish Ecological Association
The Irish Ecological Association was founded in 2015 as a learned society for ecologists working in Ireland (Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland) and/or with an interest in Irish ecosystems.
The IEA works in partnership with us to strengthen networks and opportunities for ecologists and evolutionary biologists in Ireland and the UK.
About the Irish Ecological Association:
The Irish Ecological Association was established in 2016 as a partner organisation to the British Ecological Society. It provides a forum for an international group of Irish-based ecologists and professionals interested in ecological science to meet, collaborate and solve ecological problems. With a focus on Ireland, the work of the IEA also draws on global themes relevant to ecosystems around the world. It is run on an entirely voluntary basis with free membership to the BES and non-BES members alike.
