Swedish Oikos Society
The Swedish Oikos Society (Svenska föreningen Oikos) is one of five national societies comprising the Nordic Society Oikos (NSO). It is a society for ecologists with a professional interest in ecological research, particularly those who are based in Sweden.
The society’s main activities are the biennial Swedish Oikos meetings (alternating with the NSO biennial conference) and the Oikos list - an electronic mailing list. If you are member of the society but do not have access to the list, please contact Jessica Abbott.
The society is one of the member organizations of European Ecological Federation (EEF). We can also provide financial support to workshops and courses organized by members of the society.
The word ecology stems from the ancient Greek work 'oikos', which means house, home. Ecology is the science of how organisms (animals, plants, and microbes) interact with each other and with the environment.
