Brace yourselves! Almost all of the Journal of Ecology Editors will be attending ESA this year. Mike Hutchings, David Gibson and Richard Bardgett are making their way to Portland to do all things conferency: give talks, watch their students give talks, talk to the Associate Editors of Journal of Ecology who will be there, talk to the Managing Editor of Journal of Ecology who will be there, talk to colleagues and friends…and, of course, talk to anyone interested in the journal. If you want to catch them, please stop by at the British Ecological Society (BES) stand (booth 214-215). They will be happy to talk to you unless they are talking already (see above).
Another person to catch will be Journal of Ecology blogger Scott Chamberlain. Again, if you want to hook up with him, the BES staff will be able to tell you when to best get a hold of him at the stand.
As part of its centenary-year celebrations, Journal of Ecology are sponsoring the ESA Plant Population Ecology award and are holding a Centenary Reception (by invitation only), so watch this space for further announcements during the meeting! We will also be live tweeting from @JEcology using #ESA2012.
