Ecological Theory and Application

You are here

This discussion group organises two-monthly meetings for PhD candidates with a broad interest in ecology. Each meeting is organised around a central ecological theme, such as distribution patterns, climate change, ecophysiology, trophic interactions, etc.. A guest speaker is invited to talk about her/his research and to give an introduction on the theme. Then a number of PhD candidates contributes to the afternoon by presenting their research or plans, sending in a manuscript to be commented upon, or discuss a recent paper. Aim of the meetings is to give participants an overview of state-of-the-art research within the field of ecology, and discuss the work of participating PhD candidates. At the moment there is no new meetings organised. Would you be interested in organising this discussion group, please contact the PE&RC office (office.pe@wur.nl).
