Martin Nuñez – Thu 8 Apr
How might we make ecology a truly global endeavour and include scientists in both the Global North and Global South? This free online talk will be broadcast on Zoom as part of Ecology Live 2021.
Thursday 8 Apr
15:00 UK time / 10:00 US Eastern time
Universidad Nacional del Comahue, Argentina
Ecology must be a global endeavour
Unlike physics where principles are often universal, in ecology many of our results change dramatically between regions. Despite this, most ecology publications come from a very few – wealthy – countries. This makes many of our findings of limited use, and creates unfairness in the possibilities for researchers in Global South to share their findings with a broader audience.
There is a growing demand to make ecology a more global endeavour that can be achieved with the help of the international scientific community, which includes journals and scientists in the Global North and Global South.
