BES Journals Virtual Issue: Ecology and Evolution in Ireland

The first ever meeting of the Irish Ecological Association is taking place on the 25th and 26th of November. To complement the meeting members of the IEA have put together a free Virtual Issue of BES journal content showcasing the outstanding research from ecologists active on the island of Ireland.

The Irish Ecological Association was founded in 2015 as a learned society for ecologists working in Ireland (Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland) and/or with an interest in Irish ecosystems. They work in partnership with the BES to strengthen networks and opportunities for ecologists and evolutionary biologists in Ireland and the UK.

Their first annual meeting will be held in Sligo at the end of this week and in order to celebrate the meeting and showcase the strength of research being done on the island of Ireland the IEA has joined forces with our journals team to put together an exciting Virtual Issue. The Virtual Issue contains content from all five of our journals and covers the whole breadth of ecological research, including Irish ecosystems, applied ecology, invasion ecology, aquatic ecology and methodological advances.

You can read the full Virtual Issue for free here, including a full introduction from the IEA members and editors of the issue Yvonne Buckley, Hugh Feeley, Paul Giller, Ian Montgomery and John Quinn.
