Qaecologists presenting at the 27th International Congress for Conservation Biology in Montpellier, France

Another winter, another migration of Qaecologists and friends to warmer climates. This year most of us chose Montpellier for their overwintering grounds. From the 2nd – 6th of August, we and about 2000 other attendees will gather for the 27th International Conference for Conservation, which jointly meets with the 4th European Congress for Conservation Biology (ICCB-ECCB). Here are some details on the talks and posters that QAEco and CEBRA members are presenting:
