TEO - Tropical Ecology Online

To our great regret, the current pandemic has led to the repeated cancellation of our annual meetings. With the new TEO lecture series, we would like to fill this gap as best we can until non-digital events will be possible again. TEO takes place on every second Monday of the current month and is primarily aimed at young scientists who should get the chance to present their current research work to an interested audience. The presentations will be accompanied by key-note lectures of renowned scientists from the field of tropical ecology and beyond. Please watch for our announcements on the website and through our social media outlets. Questions about the event series should be directed to teo(at)soctropecol.eu.
