Keeping with the theme of Bees’ Needs Week, and the importance of pollinators to natural and agricultural ecosystems*, the Third International Conference on Pollinator Biology, Health and Policy takes place at Penn State University, USA, from the 18th to 20th July.
Here’s a link to the PDF of the programme with the abstracts, speakers’ details, etc. I won’t be attending** but I am involved as a collaborator*** in one of the talks being presented – Luísa Carvalheiro’s project on “Direct and indirect effects of soil eutrophication on pollination services“.
Best of luck to all the speakers and attendees, looks like it’s going to be a great conference.
*Wednesday’s grumpiness has almost disappeared, though it reached a new peak yesterday when we had a paper rejected by a journal after 10 months. There was one positive review, one middling review, and then a third in which the reviewer provided no comments – just “reject”! I was not happy about that and made my feelings known to the editor…..
**I’m actually in the Azores next week attending the Island Biology 2016 conference. More about that at the weekend.
***With about a gazillion other people! Luisa has pulled together an amazing data set.
