Please submit your site to the most appropriate category. Submitting to an incorrect category may delay review of your site.
Please submit only websites that have English language content to this category and its subcategories. If your site is in a language other than English, please submit it to the appropriate category of World.
Ecology is the scientific study of the distribution and abundance of life found in fresh and salt waters and the interactions between organisms and this environment.
Please try to find the most appropriate branch of biology and submit your site there.
Sites in languages other than English should be submitted to the appropriate category of World
This category is for organizations which do not themselves conduct scientific research but aim to spread information about such research. They organize meetings, publish journals and provide research grants for scientists in the field.
Biogeography is the study of the distribution of plants and animals through space and time.
Please state briefly but clearly: your areas of expertise, your geographical scope, and your location.

Please DON''T submit a Mission Statement!

Individuals and organizations offering consultancy services in any field of ecological research, training or management. Scope is global
An ecosystem is a community of organisms and their physical environment interacting as an ecological unit. This ODP category is for web sites related to particular ecosystems, such as forests, rain forests, tundra, prairies, and deserts.
Note the following excerpt from the category description: Environmental toxicology and ecotoxicology are terms used to describe the scientific study of the adverse effects on living organisms that chemicals can have when released into the natural environment.
According to that quoted in http://www.bio.hw.ac.uk/edintox/enviro.htm (a cool site): Environmental toxicology and ecotoxicology are terms used to describe the scientific study of the adverse effects on living organisms that chemicals can have when released into the natural environment. There is a tendency to apply the term "environmental toxicology" only to the study of direct effects of environmental chemicals on human beings and the term "ecotoxicology" only to the study of the effects of chemicals on ecosystems and their nonhuman components.
This category is for sites concerned with the effects of wildfires on the environment. Fire is an integral component to the function and biodiversity of many communities, and many organisms within those communities have become adapted to withstand and even exploit it.
Please make sure that your site deals specifically with Landscape Ecology or Spatial Analysis before submitting. Sites dealing entirely with Aquatic Ecology, GIS, or Biogeography will not be accepted here, and should be submitted to the appropriate category.

Landscape ecology is the study of interacting ecosystems within a heterogeneous, or varied, environment with a spatial scale of several kilometers.

Landscape ecologists incorporate knowledge from multiple disciplines, including ecology and geology, to better understand the structure, function, and dynamics of interacting ecosystems, and to develop sustainable land-use management practices.

Microbial ecology is the relationship of microorganisms with one another and with their environment.
Molecular Ecology combines the theories of ecology and evolution with the tools of molecular biology and genetics.
This category is for personal pages about ecology by ecological scientists. The principal focus of the whole web site must be personal research or observations in ecological science. Your description should include your principal research activities and interests. Alternative categories for submission include Society: Issues: Environment: Personal Pages and Science: Employment: Resumes.

Most research activities will either occur in academic departments or in research institutes (which may either be in universities or external). Both of these are included in this category.

Restoration ecology is the study of renewing a degraded, damaged, or destroyed ecosystem through active human intervention.

Soil ecology is the study of the interactions among soil organisms and is concerned with the cycling of nutrients, the formation and stabilization of the soil structure, the spread of pathogens, and the biodiversity of this rich biological community.

Before submission, please read Where should I submit my site about animals?

Wildlife generally means non-domesticated animals that are large enough to see. It does not usually include microfauna or ranched animals.

Adapting the definition used by the ODP, Wildlife Ecology is a branch of science dealing with the interrelationships of wildlife with their own species and other animals, and with their nonliving environment. These relationships include physiological responses of individuals, structure and dynamics of populations, interactions among species, organization of biological communities, and processing of energy and matter in ecosystems.

However, as a science, Wildlife Ecology generally excludes fish and fisheries. Fisheries Ecology has developed its own tradition and methodology. The distinction of course is a convention.

Wildlife Management is included here because in practice, management is generally (though not invariably) based on ecological principles and knowledge. However it often incorporates an additional component of human interaction: it has been described as "a triad that includes habitat, people, and animals, and the interactions that occur between them" (See also: http://www.vetmed.ucdavis.edu/whc/Krausman.html.
