American Society of Ichthyologists and Herpetologists
[ASIH] One role of this society is to increase knowledge about fishes, amphibians, and reptiles. Another role is to help provide an effort to understand and conserve the Earth's natural diversity.
American Society of Primatologists
[ASP] The purpose of this society is to try to understand non human primates and encourage the exchange of information about them. This society focuses on management, primate medicine, genetics, immunology, anatomy, and ecology.
Classification Society of North American
[CSNA] (Stephen Hirtle) This non-profit organization promotes the study of clustering and classification, and the sharing of information with related fields of interest. Publications in the Journal of Classification help spread knowledge and information around the world.
Engineering in Medicine and Biology Society
[EMBS] (IEEE, Inc.) The goals of this society are to advance the applications of science and technology engineering relating to medicine and biology, to provide global leadership, and to promote this profession with set standards.
[Federation of American Societies for Experimental Biology] FASEB provides career opportunities and development services that matches applicants at all career levels with employers who hire biomedical scientists and technicians.
Institute of Biology
[IOB] The Institute of Biology is the professional body for UK biologists. It was founded in 1950, obtained a Royal Charter in 1979, and is a registered charity. Its 16,500 members work in industry, research, education, and healthcare, amongst other areas.
International Society for Evolutionary Protistology
[Charles O'Kelly and Tim Littlejohn] (ISEP) This society is open to anyone who is interested in protistology. The purpose of this society is to provide information on the interests in taxonomy, phylogeny, and the evolution of protists.
The Linnean Society of London
The goal of this society is to promote all aspects relating to biology, with special emphasis on the diversity and interrelationships of organisms.
The Mammal Society
[MS] (Martyn Gorman) This society was formed to protect mammals from threatening species. Studying mammals helps to increase knowledge of the needs they have, to identify threats they face, and to understand population changes.
Microscopical Society of Canada
The goal of this society is to help increase the development of microscopy and its techniques. Microscopy is used in medical research, pollution control, and occupational health. Microscopy helps benefit the well being of the human race. This society also provides grants to individuals who will help increase the knowledge of microscopy in the future.

Microscopy Society of America
[Nestor J. Zaluzec] (MSA) This society is composed of biological scientists, physical scientists, industrial workers, clinical workers, technologists, and students. There goal is to promote the advancement of microscopy and to bring that knowledge to the public.
The Royal Microscopical Society
[RMS] This society deals with electron microscopy, light microscopy, scanning probe microscopy, and image recording techniques. This society is broken down into multidimensional microscopy, cytometry, light microscopy, materials, electron microscopy, cell biology, and histochemistry.
The Society for Conservation Biology
[University of Texas] (SCB) SCB provides information that relates to biological conservation and educational resources for the use of everyone, from students to professionals.
Society for Cryobiology
The goal of this society is to unite all professionals whose interest are in the effects of low temperatures on non-biological and biological systems. This is done through annual meetings and through publications of the societies journal, Cryobiology.
Society for Experimental Biology
[SEB] This society's interests are in every aspect of experimental biology, which is broken up into three major sections: animal, cell, and plant biology.
Society for Integrative and Comparative Biology
[SICB] This is one of the largest societies whose goals are to increase public knowledge and promotes information relating to this subject.
[Society of Systematic Biologists (SSB)] (A Quarterly) The aim of this society is to advance science the of Systematic Biology in theory, practice, and methodology. Spreading information about this field is done through Systematic Biology, which is a journal that is published quarterly.
