Ecology Research Network

EcoRN

Ecology is the study of how living things interact with the physical environment. Ecology is applicable to many global issues, and current ecological research aims to understand and solve many urgent environmental problems.

Ecology uses a wide range of approaches to study past, current, and future ecosystems. Staying abreast of the latest technological advancements and improvements in methodology are crucial for improving the accuracy of ecological data collection and analysis. This, in turn, helps with determining and evaluating policy and management strategies. SSRN helps ecologists discover cutting edge research in their own and other related fields. SSRN also provides a platform for ecologists to share knowledge with researchers outside their field who may not otherwise encounter their work.
