@mcmadlab on conference mission

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.

If you happen to find yourself at this conference, maybe you are interested to check out what our students and postdocs have to say
