Red Macrolatinos (RML)
The Red Macrolatinos is group of researchers from around the world with common interests in the study of aquatic macroinvertebrates, freshwater ecosystems and diverse aspects related to these topics across Latin America. This network includes students, professionals, consultants and professors from countries ranging from Mexico to Argentina, along with colleagues and coworkers from Europe and the USA. We frequently share news, have a members list, and have a Facebook account to share photos and information about macroinvertebrates.
Asociación Ecuatoriana de Limnología (AEL)
The Asociación Ecuatoriana de Limnología is a national scientific organization whose purpose is to promote the understanding of the lotic, lentic and wetland ecosystems. The AEL encourages the exchange of scientific information and management of water resources between its members and other similar associations. The AEL members have diverse interests that range from purely academic topics of describing and understanding how aquatic ecosystems work, to subjects related to management, conservation and restoration of freshwater systems.
Society for Freshwater Science (SFS)
The Society for Freshwater Science is an international scientific organization whose purpose is to promote understanding of freshwater ecosystems (rivers, streams, lakes, reservoirs and estuaries) and ecosystems at the interface between aquatic and terrestrial habitats (wetlands, Marshes, riparian forests and grasslands). The society fosters the exchange of scientific information among members and with other professional societies, resource managers, policy makers, educators and the public. Society members study the genetics to the community structure of freshwater organisms, freshwater ecosystems function, physical processes that affect freshwater, and linkages between freshwater ecosystems and surrounding landscapes. Applied aspects of its science include habitat and water quality assessment, conservation, fisheries and invasive species management, integrated water resource management, and restoration.
La Sociedad(e) de Odonatología Latinoamericana (SOL)
The Sociedad(e) de Odonatología Latinoamericana seeks to promote the knowledge of dragonflies at both scientific and public outreach level, by developing educational activities through university and high school programs, scientific meetings and publications. It also strives to promote scientific research as well as the protection and conservation of dragonfly species and their habitats.
