Dear Members and Supporters of INTECOL,


The IX Montreal Congress joint with the 90th Annual Meeting of the Ecological Society of America is now just a month away.  When I last heard, about a week ago, there were 3,000 people registered with probably many more to come, so this should prove to be a great celebration of ecological science.  The final programme looks to be exceptionally strong.  If you are still trying to decide whether or not to attend, let me encourage you to register and be part of what should prove to be a most memorable Congress.  For further details of the Congress and the arrangements please visit our web page at


The membership of INTECOL has been growing steadily during the year, and we now have an excellent coverage of countries.  But can I also take this opportunity to encourage you to persuade more of your ecological friends to join us?  Membership is free until after the Montreal Congress to all those who join through the web site ( 


I am very much looking forward to meeting many old and new friends in Montreal, and of course to learning much new science,


With kindest regards,



John Lee
President, INTECOL
