AIBS publishes BioScience and provides services,support, and a voice for a variety of biological disciplines. Through AIBS, ESA participates in the BioOne subscription service (see below for details).

American National Standards Institute (ANSI)
ESA provides representation on the ANSI, Standards Developing Committee K62 (Common Names for Pest Control Chemicals). The committee was established in 1954 to develop common names for pest control chemicals having potential use in pesticides where such names appear desirable for popular designation of the chemicals.
