Sunset from JFK New York, last week, on our way back from the ESA ecological conference in Florida. I guess they call this a #trowback…
I have had time to think about all I learned in America, and my main conclusion shouldn’t surprise anybody who recalls the size of that meeting (more than 3000 scientists!):
There is just so much ecological science going on!
And with that realisation came a second one: I do want to put in all effort needed to keep my personal ecological knowledge broad. I don’t want to be squeezed in further and further in one tiny corner of ecology – as exciting as it might be, I want to contribute to its core.
That’s part of the goals for this autumn. But first things first: a trip to the mountains next week!
