TEO - Tropical Ecology Online

Our TEO talk series has ended. During the pandemic and absence of in-person meetings it served as a platform to discuss current topics in tropical ecology and connect the community of our society. Also, the TEO talk series offered a platform of exchange for in particular early career researchers. We therefore combined key-note lectures of established researchers with one or two presentations by early career researchers into a topical seminar. Instead of questions and answers to each talk, we combined the
discussion of all talks in a longer discussion round at the end of the seminar to give everyone in the audience the opportunity to get actively involved. You can find the recordings of all TEO talks on our youtube channel. Enjoy the talks and see you (hopefully) soon at one of our in-person conferences.
