A mid-meeting musing (and mushrooms!)

The Scottish forests bring autumn, but the conference on Mountains of our Future Earth feels like high summer.

After ten years and currently in the third edition, the Perth conference in particular (and mountain research as a whole) seems to have grown to full maturity, with a strong research base established by a growing set of scientists, and a clear view of what the future needs to bring. Building on impressive databases from countless global networks (like us with our own MIREN-network), we can now answer more questions than ever before, and that realisation is promising for our ‘Future Earth’, the world that this conference meeting hopes to save. The future clearly lies in these global efforts and scientists talking to each other. The joint effort is the best effort.

Very proud to be part of that!
