With all pleasure and honour, I am appointed to the Meetings Committee of the British Ecological Society for the next three years (2019 - 2022).
Founded in 1913 as the oldest ecological society in the world, BES has been promoting and fostering the study of Ecology in its widest sense.
The Society runs several major scientific meetings for ecologists each year. The Annual Meeting currently attracts 1,200 delegates each year and provides the opportunity for ecologists to present papers and posters on a wide variety of topics; an important element has always been the active participation of research students. There is an increasing number of delegates from overseas, principally Europe. It is Europe's largest annual meeting of ecologists. Since 1960 the Society has run an Annual Symposium and published a volume of its papers. It supports a range of other specialist meetings, workshops, training events and field meetings.
Nurtured as an ecologist in Hong Kong, I am a doctoral student reading for Interdisciplinary Bioscience at the University of Oxford.
