Latest Bulletins

At ESA14, held last year in Alice Springs, I was fortunate enough to see a series of talks on the intersection of  ‘nature’ and urbanisation (that is, ‘urban ecology’) by some of ESA’s excellent student and ECR members, such  as Caragh Threllfall and Pia Lentini.

Sometimes compiling the Bulletin, especially as deadlines rapidly approach and teaching heats up, is more stressful than not.
