The Intergovernmental Platform on Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services (IPBES) is seeking nominations of natural and social scientists to serve on committees that will create regional and sub-regional assessments of biodiversity and ecosystem services. Groups are being convened for the Americas, Africa, Asia and Pacific, and Europe and Central Asia.

The Ecological Society of America is assisting the U.S. government in identifying American experts to serve. For more information, visit http://esa.org/ipbes/regscoping/.
