Movement Ecology 2022: Understanding animal movement in human-altered landscapes

Join us for the Movement Ecology SIG’s annual meeting highlighting animal movement in human-altered landscapes.

The BES Movement Ecology Special Interest Group will be holding its annual meeting in person on 7- 8 September 2022 in Glasgow.

The meeting will have the theme of understanding animal movement in human-altered landscapes. We welcome contributed talks and posters and will have discussions on general issues with movement ecology and the effects of anthropogenic disturbance.

Keynote speakers

  • Catherine Gutmann Roberts, University of Plymouth
  • Juan Manuel Morales, Universidad Nacional del Comahue
  • Theoni Photopoulou, University of St. Andrews
  • Navinder Singh, Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences

Details of two further keynote speakers to be announced shortly.

Talks and posters

We will have slots for talks and space for posters at the meeting. Talks will be 12 minutes long. There may not be enough talk slots for everyone, so priority will be given to early career researchers. Please include a title and short abstract when you register so we have an idea of the balance of topics (you can change it later). Students will also be given the option to put themselves forward for a student plenary talk (20 minutes).

To guarantee consideration for a contributed talk please register and submit your abstract by 25 July 2022. We will contact attendees after this to confirm talk slots.


The deadline for registration is 23:30 (BST), Wednesday 24 August 2022.
