Welcome to the Society for Tropical Ecology (gtö)
The Society for Tropical Ecology (formerly Gesellschaft für Tropenökologie e.V., gtö) promotes and communicates new and emerging knowledge among tropical ecologists and conservationists to advance the understanding of tropical ecosystems and their protection. We are currently Europe’s largest scientific association for tropical ecology research.
- a platform for scientific exchange
- an annual scientific conference
- an monthly online talks series #TEO
- research and travel grants
- a student group for exchange among early career scientists
- an international peer-reviewed journal (Ecotropica)
Our goal is to connect students and academics with an interest in tropical ecology from around the world to understand the biodiversity and functions of tropical ecosystems. Our network aims to support ecosystem decision making and management at all levels.
We promote research on the ecology and conservation of tropical ecosystems and their unique biodiversity by connecting academics, researchers and practitioners from around the globe.
