Another summer of fieldwork is successfully wrapped up, and we are trading the high peaks of the Rockies for a convention center in Portland for the Ecological Society of America’s annual meeting. The fresh air of the mountains has been replaced with smoke from nearby wildfires, but it will be an exciting week of science and communication. The lab is going to be represented in several presentations. Please join us at some or all of these events!
