Pinsky Lab members, Jennifer, Lisa, Allison, Katrina, Rene and Dan, attended The Ecological Society of America’s (ESA) 2019 Annual Meeting in Louisville, KY from August 11th to the 16th. All of them presented an oral presentation or a poster at the conference, attended talks, met researchers in their subfields, and attended networking events.
When not attending the conference, or a networking event, they all spent time exploring Louisville – riding Bird scooters about the town, and trying lots of local food and drink.
Malin, Zoe, and Becca all attended, and gave presentations at the Species on the Move conference at the Kruger National Park in South Africa in late July.
All of them spoke to the theme of the conference: Zoë’s “Alternative climate drivers of local species richness, colonization, and extirpation in marine fishes”, Becca’s “Adapting to change? Availability of fish stocks to fishing communities on the US west coast”, and Malin’s plenary on the “Impacts of climate warming on ectotherms in the ocean and on land.
Outside of presenting and networking at the conference, they had the chance to take in the breathtaking scenery at Kruger, exploring the savannah and catching views of baboons, giraffes, and elephants!
