This week, I took the train down to Montpellier, in the sunny Meditteranean part of France, to join a conference on Functional Ecology. Here, scientists gather around the common goal of trying to find the ‘how’ in ecology. How do organisms do what they do, how do they ‘work’ in relationship with their environment?
Next to an awesome location, we thus also have highly interesting scientific talks, that will hopefully teach me a lot more about a way of ecological thinking I have less experience with.
More pictures and stories from the Mediterranean soon!
