EcoTas17 snippetsEcoTas 2017 yet again delivered a wonderful week of events presenting Australasia's latest ecological science. The theme of EcoTas 2017 was ‘Putting ecology to work’ and was designed to highlight the significant impact that ecology has in the wider world and how we can best harness the diverse nature of ecological research. This was certainly evident in most of the presentations and especially in the week's opening plenary session.
- EcoTas then got down to business and people hurried away to bury themselves in day one's sessions. From ant ecology and dung beetle poo preferences, to drought resistant forest ecosystems and water efficient wheat crops, right through to urban ecology and holistic models of ecosystem services, the range of presentations was astounding. Here are a few snippets from day one, but you can view the full program here.
- Day two kicked off with an insightful keynote addresses from Professors Luciano Beheregaray and Sue Hartley during the TERN sponsored plenary.
- There were so many highlights of EcoTas17 it's impossible to capture them all here. Here are just a few snippets from the week's action... and over 1500 #EcoTas17 tweets!
