How to join


As of January 1, 2015, the membership fee is $16 per year or $70 for a five year membership. 

You can now pay your IAB dues by PayPal and save currency exchange fees. To do so, click on the **PayPal** link .......... HERE

In 2013, at the London meeting of the International Association of Bryologists (IAB), the Council unanimously passed the proposal to increase the dues by US $5.00. Thus the total dues per year is US$16.00. Five year membership is still offered and will be at the rate of $70. This will become effective as of January 1, 2015. 

The Council delayed an increase in 2014 until the new flagship IAB journal, Bryophyte Diversity and Evolution, had been negotiated with Magnolia Press. There has not been an increase in dues for over a decade, and the Council supported this increase to provide greater exclusive services to IAB members. This includes: 
  • free and open access to the journal Bryophyte Diversity and Evolution; 
  • providing financial support to the organization of IAB meetings; 
  • improved web facilities; and
    increasing financial awards to students to increase student participation and young scientists. 
Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions regarding your membership or this process.

Remember that students can get free membership for one year.
