Online Ecology Conferences
One of the critical tools for data visualization today is the R statistical programming language. Especially in conjunction with the tidyverse software packages, R has become an extremely powerful and flexible platform for making figures, tables, and reproducible reports. However, R can be intimidating for first time users, and there are so many resources online that it can be difficult to sort through without guidance.
The focus in this course is learning to use ggplot2 to make a variety of visualizations and to polish those visualizations using tools within ggplot as well as vector graphics editing software.
Canadian Society for Ecology and Evolution Annual Meeting (Online)
Date: August 15th - 20th
Abstract Submission Deadline: June 11th
Welcome! We are excited to announce that CSEE-SCEE 2021 will be hosted virtually by the University of British Columbia and Simon Fraser University, in Vancouver, BC, Canada. We respectfully acknowledge the traditional and unceded territory of these lands . The conference will be FREE to CSEE members thanks to our generous sponsors and our hard working committee .
The conference aims to promote the study of ecology and evolution in Canada and globally, raising awareness of the importance of these fields; and facilitate and expand communication between CSEE members, policy-makers, granting councils and other stakeholders. It will feature plenaries, concurrent sessions, workshops, social events, network-building activities, and a twitter conference. See the preliminary program.
2nd Crossing the Palaeontological-Ecological Gap Online
Date: September 6th - 9th
Abstract Submission Deadline: June 15th
For a truly synthetic understanding of evolutionary and ecological processes, patterns should be studied at all spatial and temporal scales. Palaeontologists usually tackle ecological patterns and processes operating on longer time scales, whereas ecologists focus on those occurring on shorter time scales. This partitioning of temporal scale hinders communication, data integration and synthesis in ecology.
The CPEG meeting - Crossing the Palaeontological-Ecological Gap - is designed to bring palaeontologists and ecologists together to share ideas, data and methods in areas that are studied by both, but typically independently. These research areas include, but are not limited to, biogeography, community and population ecology, food web dynamics, and extinction selectivity. We invite all those interested in ecology, at any temporal and spatial scale, to present their research and attend this integrative meeting!

To link ATBC with conservation and management initiatives.
Marianas Terrestrial Conservation & Conservation Conference Workshop
Date: June 8th - 10th and June 15th - 17th
We had our first conference and workshop in November 2017, at Guam Community College, with over 40 presenters and 250 attendees! Our second conference/workshop was combined with the annual Brown Treesnake meeting November 13-15, 2018, with over 250 attendees. Our third conference was on Saipan from November 18-20, 2019, with a similar number of attendees. We postponed our 2020 conference due to Covid.
