Weecology at ESA 2012

Sadly, Ethan and I are missing ESA this year, but our group still has a strong presence this year. In fact you can see a weecologist every day of the conference if you so desire! If you’re at ESA and want to know what the weecologists are up to, go check out our various talks and posters. If you’re like us and can’t make it this year but want to know what’s going on, you can follow the conference on twitter, just search for the hashtag:  #esa2012 . Twitterers, we are depending on you to keep up informed on the cool talks you see!

Our group’s talks/posters organized by day are below. Names of current weecology members are in bold and former weecologists in italics, titles linked to ESA abstract if you want to know more.
