societas europaea herpetologica
The Societas Europaea Herpetologica (SEH) is a society of nearly 350 members (professional and non-professional herpetologists) from European and other countries.
SEH publishes a quarterly journal, Amphibia-Reptilia, and an open access online journal, Herpetology Notes. Generally every other year, SEH organises an international conference at different venues in Europe at which members can participate at reduced fee.
SEH is an international non-governmental member of IUCN - the World Conservation Union.
SEH is controlled by its statutes and by-laws, and the Executive Council, whose members are elected by members of the Society at Ordinary General (Business) Meetings.
SEH has three committees. The Conservation Committee, the Mapping Committee and the Taxonomic Committee.
SEH annually awards the SEH Grant in Herpetology (up to EUR 2000) to a project that is orientated to conservation of the amphibians and reptiles of Europe and the Mediterranean basin, focused on either a species or habitat.
