Online Ecology Conferences
This Specialization will give you rigorous training in the R language, including the skills for handling complex data, building R packages, and developing custom data visualizations. You’ll be introduced to indispensable R libraries for data manipulation, like tidyverse, and data visualization and graphics, like ggplot2. You’ll learn modern software development practices to build tools that are highly reusable, modular, and suitable for use in a team-based environment.
Ecology in R Conference

Abstract Submission Deadline: February 7th
Ecology in R is a discussion group for scientists to share, troubleshoot, and improve R code for their ecology projects and data analysis. The Ecology in R conference is an extension of the group aiming to to promote and assist researchers with current analysis techniques and R packages in use in Ecology. The presentations and posters at this conference are heavily focused on the analysis part of a project. To understand the requirements before submission please see the about EIR tab.
This conference is kept entirely online, with webinars of the main presentations which are also recorded and published for later reference for users.

This is an electronic conference, removing the need to travel and eliminating participation expenses.
The conference will be organized around the following general topics, providing a forum for presenting and discussing new results. Topics of interest include but are not limited to Marine diversity, Animal diversity, Plant diversity, Microbial diversity and culture collections, Chemical biodiversity and chemical ecology, Biodiversity conservation, Biogeography and macroecology, Phylogeny and evolution, Biodiversity loss and dynamics, Mesophotic ecosystems diversity and Invasive species and diversity
The format of the conference is as follows: After abstract acceptance, the authors will submit a pre-recorded video presentation or a series of narrated slides that will be accessible online, open for discussion, comments, and questions during the entire conference and will remain available after the e-conference. Authors are requested to submit a full description of their work in a conference paper that will be peer-reviewed and, upon acceptance, published in Proceedings. Paper submission is not a requirement for active conference participation.
We look forward to engaging in exciting discussions and hearing new ideas and perspectives from experts in the field. All participants are welcome to join the online conference.
5th British Bat Research Symposium
Date: March 11th
Abstract Submission Deadline: February 12th
BritBats was originally established to bring together UK based undergraduate and postgraduate students conducting research on bats anywhere in the world. Due to the pandemic, over the past year there have been limited opportunities for networking and forming important connections between students, early career researchers and the wider bat research community. BritBats 2021 provides a platform for these connections to be made and maintained. In another break with tradition, this meeting will be open to post-doctoral researchers to present their research.
Priority will be given to students and post-doctoral researchers to present their research, however, BritBats is open to anyone around the world who has an interest in bat research, from academia, to NGOs, to industry and any bat enthusiasts.
Reforestation for Biodiversity, Carbon Capture and Livelihoods Conference
Date: February 24th - 26th
Registration Deadline: February 19th
Tree planting dominates political and popular agendas, often portrayed as an easy answer to the climate crisis and effective mitigation for corporate carbon emissions.
But it is not a simple solution and planting the wrong trees in the wrong place can cause considerably more damage than benefits, failing to benefit either people or nature.
The Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew and Botanic Gardens Conservation International (BGCI) will jointly convene three days of online discussion and debate on best practice and policy, underpinned by scientific evidence, to go beyond the headlines and find ways of raising the standard of global reforestation.
The conference will create a global hub of expertise and innovative thinking to ensure that reforestation delivers benefits, not just for carbon capture but also for biodiversity and human wellbeing.
We will focus on finding workable, evidence-based solutions for reforestation to benefit biodiversity, carbon capture and livelihoods – questioning assumptions, showcasing success stories, identifying challenges and encouraging new, integrative approaches.
