About NSO

The Nordic Society Oikos

Oikos, meaning home, is the root of the word “ecology." The Nordic Society Oikos is a home for ecology in the Nordic region. NSO supports the national ecological societies of the five Nordic countries and engages the global scientific community through its international journals.

Get Involved

Our National Societies

The Nordic Society Oikos is a parent society that unites the national ecological societies of Sweden, Denmark, Finland, Iceland and Norway. All NSO members have dual membership in one of these national societies. (When you become a member of NSO, you will select which national society you wish to join as well.)

Become a Member

It's easy to join NSO, and you do not need to be affiliated with the Nordic countries. Global members welcome!

As a member of NSO you join a large and active network of ecologists across the Nordic region and beyond. Members receive access to the member database, exclusive newsletters with updates about Nordic ecology and society activities, ongoing opportunities for promotion on our social media channels, and discounted registration for our biennial conference. Through your dual membership in one of our national societies, you also receive benefits specific to that society. Learn more about member benefits.
