Integrating Tropical Ecology Across Biomes and Continents

29-31 March 2017


Join us at Lancaster Environment Centre, Lancaster University for the British Ecological Society’s 9th Annual Tropical Ecology Meeting!

With a focus on developing global collaborations, inspiring keynote addresses, dynamic workshops and a live video link with researchers on-the-ground at the Smithsonian Tropical Research Institute in Panama (technology permitting) this year’s meeting promises to be particularly lively and exciting! Our conference dinner will be held in the Pavilion at the beautiful Williamson Park, and for that extra tropical flavour, the catering at our evening poster session is brought to you by local company Go Burrito.

Come and share your fieldwork experiences, meet other up-and-coming scientists, start new collaborations, and help shape the future of tropical research!

Alongside the regular conference oral and poster sessions, there will be three workshops:

  • Money Money Money Crowdfunding for researchers
  • Editor’s Question Time Your publishing questions answered by a panel of BES Journal Editors
  • An Integrated Future Shaping the next developments in tropical ecology
