Types of Membership & Subscription Rate

Full NZ $80* per annum

Full members receive new issues of the New Zealand Journal of Ecology in either electronic or hard copy form, access to all recent and past electronic journal articles (including those in press), the society newsletter in electronic format, and substantially discounted registration fees at the annual conference.

Unwaged  NZ $45* per annum

Unwaged membership is available only on application to Council for full-time students or unemployed persons.  Unwaged members may receive the journal but must specifically request it.

Overseas  NZ $105* per annum (includes air postage)

Overseas members may send payment for the equivalent amount in their local currency. Simply look up the current exchange rate to determine your amount in local currency, write out a personal cheque for that local-currency amount and post it to us. For some reason the NZ banking system lets us convert to NZ$ for a fee of 5 cents, and your bank treats it as a locally cashed cheque. We can also accept credit card payments (Visa only). Please contact the secretariat for more information on this.

*There is a $10 rebate for members who renew before 15 February each year and for new members
