Ecology Live 2020
Watch talks on from our free online seminar series in 2020, Ecology Live.
The British Ecological Society broadcast free online talks on the latest ecological research from April to September 2020.
The series began in April right at the start of the coronavirus lockdown in many countries. We were thrilled to have over 5000 people register to watch the talks live on Zoom, with tens of thousands of views on YouTube during the series.
Ecology Live will be back for another series in 2021 with more great speakers and more fascinating ecology.
You can catch up on the 20 talks on our Youtube channel.
