Report from Ecological Society of America conference – 105science

Report from the Ecological Society of America conference in Portland, USA by the Science Show’s Chris Creese. This show features a chat with ‘critical transitions’ expert Marten Scheffer (Netherlands) covering big ideas from his book and a new film collaboration with artist Tone Bjordam.

We also look at two innovative projects where everyday folk and travellers can participate in collecting data needed for ecology research. Chris Creese talks with Jake Weltzin of the National Phenology Network (USA) and Brendan Weiner from ‘Adventurers and Scientists for Conservation’ about how we can all participate in science.
