The International Biogeography Society (IBS)


Biogeography is the study of the geography of life and it has a long and distinguished history. Modern biogeography explores a great diversity of patterns in the geographic variation of nature â�" from physiological, morphological and genetic variation among individuals and populations to differences in the diversity and composition of biotas along geographic gradients. It is a unifying field that provides a holistic understanding of the relationships between the earth and its biota. IBS was founded as a non-profit organization in 2000 with the following mission: Foster communication and collaboration among biogeographers in disparate academic fields, increase awareness and interest in the contributions of biogeographers, and promote the training and education of biogeographers.
Please visit our website, www.biogeography.org, for details on how to join us in the study and promotion of biogeography! Membership is very affordable and has multiple advantages.



Society for the Study of Evolution


EVOLUTION is published monthly by the Society for the Study of Evolution. The objectives of the Society for the Study of Evolution, which was founded in March 1946, are the promotion of the study of organic evolution and the integration of the various fields of science concerned with evolution. The Society endeavors to accomplish these objectives through the publication of the journal and through meetings and working committees.



The American Society of Naturalists


The purpose of the Society is to advance and to diffuse knowledge of organic evolution and other broad biological principles so as to enhance the conceptual unification of the biological sciences. This is achieved by publishing The American Naturalist and by holding an annual meeting with a scientific program of symposia and contributed papers and posters.



Society for Molecular Biology and Evolution

The Society for Molecular Biology and Evolution is an international society that exists to provide facilities for association and communication among molecular evolutionists, and has as one of its primary goals to increase communication between the fields of evolution and molecular biology. In order to accomplish these goals the Society publishes the journal Molecular Biology and Evolution (MBE), and it sponsors an annual meeting.



Systematics Association


Based in the UK, the Systematics Association is commited to furthering all aspects of Systematic biology. It organises a vigorous programme of international conferences on key themes in systematics, including a series of major biennial conferences launched in 1997 (the fourth was held in Dublin in August 2003). The association also supports a variety of training courses in systematics and awards grants in support of systematics research.



Australasian Evolution Society

The AES It is a non-profit organisation and seeks to foster intellectual exchange among those interested in all facets of evolution biology. The AES promotes the scientific study of evolution, provides opportunities for the discussion and dissemination of information among members, and maintains an active interest in the teaching of evolution in the wider community. The Society provides information via its web page and holds a biennial conference.



Willi Hennig Society


The Willi Hennig Society publishes Cladistics, and holds annual meetings around the world.



Society of Australian Systematic Biologists

The Society of Australian Systematic Biologists is for people who are committed to using the science of biological systematics as a basis for the study and understanding of nature. The Society is a non-profit inter-disciplinary organisation whose purposes are to promote the scientific study of biological systematics and to disseminate scientific and educational information related to its fields of interests.



Systematics Association of New Zealand

The Systematics Association of New Zealand's web page is under construction, but some information is available.



European Society for Evolutionary Biology

The European Society for Evolutionary Biology was founded in 1987. The objectives of the Society are to "Support the study of organic evolution and the integration of those scientific fields that are concerned with evolution: molecular and microbial evolution, behaviour, genetics, ecology, life histories, development, paleontology, systematics and morphology". The Society endeavours to accomplish these objectives through the publication of the Journal of Evolutionary Biology, through meetings, and the John Maynard Smith award.



Canadian Society for Ecology and Evolution

The Canadian Society for Ecology and Evolution (CSEE) is a non-partisan, non-profit group of practicing ecologists and evolutionary biologists throughout Canada.



Linnean Society

Welcome to the Linnean Society of London. Now that we have entered the new millennium - and one of the most exciting periods in the biological sciences - the Society's role remains as that outlined in our first charter, 200 years ago, as: The cultivation of the Science of Natural History in all its branches.



Human Behavior and Evolution Society

The Human Behavior and Evolution Society (HBES) is an interdisciplinary, international society of researchers, primarily from the social and biological sciences, who use modern evolutionary theory to help to discover human nature - including evolved emotional, cognitive and sexual adaptations.



Worldwide Network for Evolutionary Biology

This website provides the evolution biology community with a variety of resources. These include, but aren't limited to, the areas of research, education, and public outreach. Researchers are provided with listings of people, institutions, software, and websites segregated by areas of interest. Educators can take advantage of listings of classroom resources for institutions of all levels, as well as software and other materials. Public outreach intends to breach comunication gaps between our science and interested parties (as well as the general public). Funded by the NSF.
