It’s going to be pretty quiet in the lab next week with lots of Qaecologists travelling to Baltimore, Maryland, USA for the 26th International Congress for Conservation Biology.
So if you’re in town for the conference as well, stop by and check out some of these great talks and posters.
Good luck to everyone presenting!
