2002 ESA Student Prize winners

 

With almost 600 delegates, Ecology 2002 was a great success, being the largest ecology conference ever held in the Southern Hemisphere. The 2002 annual meeting of the ESA was held jointly with the New Zealand Ecological in Cairns and featured a mix of special symposia and open forum sessions, a postgraduate students' day, and optional excursions to surrounding regional attractions.
