Ecological Society of America: Virtual Exhibit

Ecology and Environmental Studies at UC Press

Building on California’s reputation as an environmental leader and the University of California system’s strengths as one of the largest public education institutions, we aim to advance knowledge and drive progressive change through our environmental studies books. We are looking for experts who are explicitly talking across disciplines and who are focused on the intersection of environment and society. Disciplines and topic areas of interest include, but are not limited to, ecology, conservation science, environmental sociology, geography, environmental history, environmental justice, and environmental policy.

Congratulations to Drew Harvell, Winner of the Sustainability in Science Award

UC Press is proud to share that Drew Harvell has been chosen as the 2020 recipient of the Ecological Society of America‘s Sustainability Science Award for her UC Press-published book, Ocean Outbreak: Confronting the Rising Tide of Marine Disease. Read more about Drew and her book.

Speak with the Editor

The environmental problems we face will not be solved by one disciplinary approach. It will take big ideas, research, and collaboration from social sciences, humanities, and sciences to find innovative, equitable, and practical solutions to these global issues. We are expanding our offerings in environmental studies to include interdisciplinary work that speaks to a range of audiences, including scholars, students, and general interest readers.

Although we are unable to see you in person, we'd still love for you to "stop by the booth" and meet with us virtually. Editor Stacy Eisenstark is taking brief Zoom appointments the week of August 17.
