Meeting Overview

Welcome to #UTE2019!

We are very excited to announce a Joint Meeting of the Society for Tropical Ecology (gtö) and the British Ecological Society (BES). The event celebrates the fourth European Conference of Tropical Ecology, the annual meeting of the Society for Tropical Ecology and the Annual Meeting of the BES Tropical Ecology Special Interest Group (BES-TEG). The event is additionally supported by the Association for Tropical Biology and Conservation, in particular promoting participation from its new Africa Chapter. This collaborative venture will bring together ecologists from the UK and Europe, together with their research partners from across the entire tropics. The meeting will promote the work of diverse research groups, foster innovation in linking people, research topics, countries and continents and inspire participants to collaborate in work that will strengthen the field.

The meeting will be held from 8 – 12 April 2019, in the UK city of Edinburgh, jointly hosted by the University of Stirling, the University of Edinburgh and the Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh.

A special thank you to Alberto S. Ballesteros for the bespoke flamingo artwork representing this event.
