This is the blog post to accompany the ‘Promoting your research workshop’ at 2021 Ecology Across Borders in Liverpool. Whether you made it to the conference or not, you can find some useful tips here on how to communicate your research to a wide audience. Davy Falkner – Media Relations Officer Our BES Media Relations Officer gives a run down of how to find the … Continue reading Promoting your research
In this series we share the experiences of ‘globetrotters’ in ecological sciences, who have traveled all over the world during their research career. Dr. Yingying Wang, the current Haldane prize winner, writes about her academic journey from China for her M.S., to the Netherlands for her Ph.D., and finally to Finland for her postdoctoral research.
Over the next few weeks, we will be posting blogs from ecologists across the globe on how the Coronavirus pandemic is affecting them and their research. In this post, Talita Amado discusses how life under lockdown is affecting researchers and students in Brazil – and how it is affecting her personally.
Dr. Erin L.
Sauer is a postdoctoral researcher at the University of Wisconsin – Madison in
the Forest and Wildlife Ecology Department. Her research focuses on
understanding how environmental pressures and animal behaviour shape
host-parasite interactions, and she recently published a paper showing
that behavioural fever reduces ranaviral infection in toads
In this insight, Dr. Marie-Caroline Prima discusses the paper, “A landscape experiment of spatial network robustness and space-use reorganisation following habitat fragmentation”, possible new research questions, and her involvement in ecology.
In this insight, Dr. Stefano Mammola discusses his paper “Extending Janzen’s hypothesis to temperate regions: a test using subterranean ecosystems” as well his experience as a subterranean ecologist. What’s your paper about? This paper is about testing the underlying assumption of Janzen’s hypothesis in caves. Published in 1967 under the evocative title “Why Mountain Passes are Higher in the Tropics”, Janzen’s hypothesis is an important … Continue reading Stefano Mammola: Revisiting Janzen’s hypothesis using cave-dwelling spiders
