About Us

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.

NSO Vision: The Nordic Society Oikos is a home for ecologists, a nexus for knowledge, and a guiding light for ecology worldwide.
