Join YESI for the 11th Tropical Ecosystem Network meeting which will focus on Protected Areas. Leading experts from the University of York will present their work on this topic through a series of short presentations and soapbox talks, followed by a networking lunch and then an in-depth group discussion to explore future research directions, potential applications/opportunities.
If you would like to participate in the soapbox talks (present your research in 3 minutes!) please let us know by emailing Alice Flint at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The meeting is primarily for network members but non-members are welcome to attend. The YESI Tropical Ecosystem Network is designed to bring together the breadth of expertise across departments at the University of York to build innovative collaborations, develop new interdisciplinary research directions and bid for funding opportunities.
