Biogeography conference


We participated in the first conference of 2024! From 7th to 11th January the 11th Biennial Conference of the International Biogeography Society was held in Prague, Czechia. Our workgroup was represented by Eleonora, Enrico, Oscar and Meelis. Eleonora and Enrico presented in the functional macroecology session. Eleonora's talk was about mammal life history strategies, and Enrico showed how functional diversity promotes stability over time in plant and tetrapod communities. Oscar had a poster presentation about the effects of historical land use on mycorrhizal diversity in agricultural landscapes, and Meelis's poster showcased the results from the DarkDivNet global initiative.
