AND LTER: Andrews Experimental Forest
Long Term Ecological Research. Over its 15-year history the Andrews LTER program has become a major center for analysis of forest and stream ecosystems in the Pacific Northwest. Today, several dozen university and Federal scientists use this LTER site as a common meeting ground, working together to gain basic understanding of ecosystems and to apply this new knowledge in management policy. The Andrews LTER program has its roots in the establishment of the H. J. Andrews Experimental Forest by the US Forest Service in 1948.

British Ecological Society
Journal of Ecology publishes original research papers on all aspects of ecology of plants (including algae) in both aquatic and terrestrial ecosystems. Descriptive, experimental, historical and theoretical studies of plant communities, populations, individuals, and their interactions with other organisms (e.g. animals, microbes) are acceptable. Papers concerned solely with cultivated plants and agricultural ecosystems are not acceptable. Types of papers published: Standard, Essay Review, Forum, Biological Flora of the British Isles. Journal of Ecology is published six times a year.
Center for Respect of Life and Environment
The work of the Center is to awaken people's ecological sensibilities and to transform lifestyles, institutional practices, and social policies to support the community of life. Our major programs identify approaches to economic and social development that recognize the links between ecology, spirituality, and sustainability.

National Center for Ecological Analysis and Synthesis (NCEAS)
At NCEAS, scientists conduct collaborative research on major fundamental and applied problems in ecology. The Center facilitates integrative research aimed at synthesizing existing data and information, and subsequently making these data available in accordance with our data policy. It fosters new techniques in mathematical modeling, dynamic simulation, visualization of ecological systems, and digital mapping of complex ecological phenomena. NCEAS provides special educational opportunities to graduate students and young scientists, and disseminates the results of its research to potential users.
