Description:

An important organization for biologists and science educators, the American Institute of Biological Sciences (AIBS) "was established as a national umbrella organization for the biological sciences in 1947 by 11 scientific societies as part of the National Academy of Sciences. An independent non-profit organization since 1954, it has grown to represent more than 80 professional societies and organizations with a combined membership exceeding 240,000 scientists and educators." The AIBS website is organized into three main sections including: News & Publications; Programs & Services; and Organization. These three sections connect to Public Policy Reports, Education Reports, Peer Review (SPARS), Position Statements, Classifieds, Membership Directories, and much more. Of special note, the site links to the AIBS Virtual Library which presently features free online lectures by prominent biologists. Curious site visitors can download a 16-page booklet about AIBS as well as a 25th and 50th anniversary historical review of the organization.
