We are planning to host the European Conference of Tropical Ecology in the UK in April 2019, jointly supported by the British Ecological Society Tropical Ecology Group (BES-TEG), the European Society for Tropical Ecology (GTOE) and the European Group of the Association for Tropical Biology and Conservation (ATBC).
