Ecological Theory & Application Discussion Group meeting

Date: 08 February 2017
Time: 15:00 - 17:00
Location: Wageningen

Ecological Theory & Application is a discussion group of the PE&RC research school (Wageningen University, University of Utrecht, Naturalis Biodiversity Center and the Netherlands Institute of Ecology). SENSE PhD candidates may also get TSP credits for participation in this discussion group.

They organise two-monthly meetings for PhD students with a broad interest in ecology. Each meeting is organised around a central ecological theme, such as distribution patterns, climate change, ecophysiology, trophic interactions, etc.

Sometimes a guest speaker is invited to give an introduction on the theme and tell about her/his research. PhD candidates present their research results or plans, we comment upon a manuscript, or discuss a recent paper.

Aims of the meetings are

  • give participants an overview of research being done within the field of ecology
  • show the links between research being done in different research groups and in different parts of the world and learn from each others work
  • discuss the work of participating PhD students with respect to methods, results, conclusions, plans, presentation, etc.
