It started in 1988! List of the members in 1988(PDF).
The idea of having a SINO-ecological organization can be traced back to as early as 1986 at the joint meeting of ESA and the International Congress of Ecology (INTECOL) at Syracuse. During the 1988 annual meeting of the Ecological Society of America, at the University of California, Davis, over 20 overseas students conceived the idea of forming an overseas Chinese ecological organization (Photo above, Davis 1988). After the meeting, Jianguo Wu, Xinyuan Wu, and Yegang Wu (the “Triple Wu”) worked diligently and passionately to establish the organization, and came up with the name, SINO-ECOLOGISTS CLUB OVERSEAS (SINO-ECO for short) ( China Daily 1989).
