Virtual collection

The British Ecological Society and the Royal Meteorological Society have produced a joint virtual collection with Wiley that showcases existing publications demonstrating research at the interface of ecology and climate science. Freely available throughout May 2022, this collection aims to help identify where knowledge gaps lie and where future collaboration between ecologists and climate scientists could further advance understanding.
