Like the Florida jungle, where at first sight all is a uniform green, before slowly the exciting plants and animals start to appear.
That’s how the schedule of the conference of the Ecological Society of America tends to look. Hundreds, if not thousands of ecologists giving a presentation, tens of sessions at the same time. It is easy to loose the overview.
But there is plenty of hidden treasures in there. Must-see presentations, exciting talks, people you have to meet. And that is the aim of this week: get home from ESA with lots of new inspiration and connections. Wish me luck, I’m about to dive into the jungle!
