Abstract: In this paper, a study is made of the pullback action of the diffeomorphism group on the totality of symplectic forms on a compact manifold. For this action, the orbit is shown to be a smooth (Banach) manifold consisting of a denumerable union of submanifolds, each lying in a fixed cohomology class.

In addition, a precise characterization is given of those symplectic manifolds for which there is a local factorization of the pullback action in the sense of a transverse ``slice'' of closed 2-forms, invariant under the group of symplectic diffeomorphisms.
