@mcmadlab on conference mission

25 Jul 2017


It's that time of the year again, when few lonely people walk through empty hallways of the universities because most of their colleagues left to attend conferences all over the world in much warmer places. Our lab has lost about 50% of it's crew, mostly to beautiful Colombia, where the Society for Conservation Biology is hosting their biannual meeting: ICCB 2017 in Cartageña.
