HERS Membership Form
We are excited for you to join HERS!

We are a Research Coordination Network funded by the National Science Foundation dedicated to linking terrestrial, freshwater, and marine ecologists with economists, sociologists, statisticians, modelers, and resource managers to develop a synthetic understanding in what governs ecosystems’ resistance and resilience to tropical cyclones. In addition to connecting people, another core effort of HERS is to synthesize a growing, publicly available database on ecosystem responses to hurricanes. Visit the Data section of our website to view and contribute to our growing database that currently has >30 years of storm characteristics and ecosystem response data from >45 storms.

We welcome all people of diverse career stages, races, ethnicities, religions, gender identifications, sexual orientations, abilities, incomes, marital statuses, ages, geographic locations, philosophies, and veteran statuses to join the network.

In addition to our 'HERS workshop Publications' section on our website, we would like to form a "Relevant and Recent Publications"  of our HERS members' work. Do you have any recent publications since 2018 to showcase that is related to ecosystem responses to tropical cyclones? Please list here with a ";" between each publication. Below is our preferred citation style description.
Citation Style Description for question above
Hogan, J. Aaron, et al. (2020) A Research Framework to Integrate Cross-Ecosystem Responses to Tropical Cyclones. BioScience 70.6: 477-489. https://doi.org/10.1093/biosci/biaa034

Below is helpful information that will allow us to better understand who is apart of HERS network
Your career stage - your response to this question helps us characterize the diversity of career stages represented within the network. *
Select up to four options that best describe your research expertise and interests:
List up to 5 other keywords (separated by ",") that describe your research interests and/or study species and is not a keyword in the question above.
Is it OK if we share this information above regarding career stage and interests anonymously to create statistical visuals for who comprises the HERS Network? *
These next two questions will let us gauge our Diversity, Equity, and Inclusive Goals
HERS welcomes and encourages all people regardless of age, culture, race, ethnicity, gender identity or expression, national origin, physical or mental disability, politics, religion, sex, sexual orientation, socio-economic status, or subculture. To accomplish our goals – foster connections between those investigating ecosystems’ resistance and resilience to tropical cyclones and synthesize an open access database on ecosystems’ responses to hurricanes – we aim for our network to reflect our global diversity, both in people and locations that are impacted by tropical cyclones. Importantly, the more reflective of society’s diversity HERS Network is, the greater opportunity we have to see all possible answers to a problem, forming holistic findings and solutions. We promote diversity and equity via an inclusive network, a focus on diversity in leadership and membership, and using multiple platforms to facilitate global engagement within our activities and events.
