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!
Enjoy and take bug spray!
We were warned ample times about the mosquitoes in the Everglades, so we came prepared :D. Yet in the end, it wasn’t that bad (at least not for someone used to the mosquitoes in northern Sweden, like me 🙂 )
Thanks for sharing your experiences and your amazing pictures. It’s funny see how you are growing as a scientist. Soon the world will outgrow to you.
Thanks for these kind words, Josep! Luckily the world is a big place, so plenty of space for growing!
