Macroecology Meeting in the Works

We macroecologists are scattered across the globe, often with little in person access to other macroecologists. Often we’re lucky if there’s another person at our institution that has even heard the word macroecology. Sadly, we don’t have a lot of venues for bringing large groups of macroecologists together. Many of the ones that do occur tend to be local in attendance or focused on one area of macroecology. But plans are afoot, my friends! This week, I received the below letter from Sally Keith – a macroecologist at the Danish Centre for Macroecology, Evolution & Climate and a member of the British Ecological Society Macroecology Special Interest Group. Some of the European Macroecology groups are planning a meet up and there is interest in reaching out across the pond. They are in the  planning phase and are looking for input on good dates/length of meeting. If you’re interested, read the email below and take the short survey to help them think about logistics!

If you want more info, you should email one of the people who signed the below email (I’ve linked to their websites). I’m not an organizer, just a messenger!


Dear All

We are delighted to announce an upcoming joint meeting of the BES Macroecology Group, the GfO Macroecology Group, and the Center for Macroecology, Evolution & Climate (CMEC). The meeting will be hosted by CMEC in Copenhagen, Denmark during June 2015. We are sure it will provide an exciting opportunity for the members of these groups to share their latest research and ideas, and to initiate new collaborations in the relatively informal atmosphere consistent with the society group meetings. 

To help us find the best dates, length of meeting and a good estimate of participant numbers, we would appreciate it if you could spare a couple of minutes to fill out this very short survey: https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/KKFBMHY

Thanks very much 

The organising committee
