Read about how BES grant funding makes an impact for both research and the researcher.
The British Ecological Society distributes almost £375,000 each year to advance research in ecology, either through small grants, outreach grants, large grants or grants for ecologists in Africa. But where do these grants go, and what impact do they have for the researcher, for ecology and for the wider world?
