How to become a member?

  • If you reside in a country or region with a chapter, please contact that IALE region. If your country has no chapter, consider joining one of our regional chapters (Africa, Europe, or North America).  When you join a chapter or region, you automatically become a member of IALE-World.  Please check the list of chapters.
  • If there is not an appropriate chapter or region, you can join IALE-World directly. Before filling out the online membership registration, please consider that the online version of Landscape Ecology is free of charge, and you will receive the credentials to get access after your registration to IALE-World. Please send your personal information to our treasurer e-mail address in order to be correctly registered.
