This new publication of the Ecological Society of America focuses on opportunities to connect ecological information to public policy issues. Aimed primarily at ecological scientists but also useful for others, the book covers the Congressional and Executive branches-highlighting federal agencies with environmental regulatory authority or resource management responsibilities-an overview of key environmental laws, tips on effective preparation and communication during in-person meetings, congressional testimony, crafting opinion editorials, talking with rotary clubs, contributing to science blogs and working with the media. Numerous resources at the local, state, and federal levels as well as policy fellowships and awards for young scientists are also included. Click here to purchase this book
