The International Association for Ecology and Health (EcoHealth)

ecohealth
Ecohealth grapples with issues pertaining to human health, wildlife health, and ecosystem sustainability by expressly facilitating dialogue across scientific disciplines, as well as a suite of sources of knowledge, from quantitative science to indigenous sources. The association was launched at the EcoHealth ONE Conference, which took place October 6-9, 2006 in Madison, Wisconsin.

Mission & Objectives 

The Association's mission is to strive for sustainable health of people, wildlife, and ecosystems by promoting discovery, understanding and transdisciplinarity.

Collaborative Discovery 

We strive to promote the highest (and often the most challenging) level of collaborative discovery: exploration that is 'transdisciplinary'.
Transdisciplinary pursuits involve combining strengths to achieve hybridized innovative approaches to problem-solving. Today's complex environmental public health challenges demand this level of strategic team-based approaches to the tightly coupled human-natural system interactions underlying many of our most pressing threats to our sustained health and environment.
As the largest unifying entity, the International Association for Ecology for Health is poised to promote sustainable health through scientific discovery and understanding at the confluence of disciplines. The new Association will advance a broader discourse between the fields of ecology (both natural and social ecology) and health and serve as a network and bridge across other societies.

    AIMS & SCOPE

     

    EcoHealth aims to advance research, practice, and knowledge integration at the interface of ecology and health by publishing high quality research and review articles that address and profile new ideas, developments, and programs. The journal’s scope encompasses research that integrates concepts and theory from many fields of scholarship (including ecological, social and health sciences, and the humanities) and draws upon multiple types of knowledge, including those of relevance to practice and policy. Papers address integrated ecology and health challenges arising in public health, human and veterinary medicine, conservation and ecosystem management, rural and urban development and planning, and other fields that address the social-ecological context of health. The journal is a central platform for fulfilling the mission of the International Association for Ecology & Health to strive for sustainable health of people, domestic animals, wildlife, and ecosystems by promoting discovery, understanding, and transdisciplinarity.  

    The journal invites substantial contributions in the following areas:
