International Collaboration Virtual Issue

The British Ecological Society and INTECOL will hold the 11th International Congress of Ecology in London as part of the society's centenary celebrations. The papers below are from a selection of keynote and plenary speakers, and represent one of the key themes of INTECOL – international collaboration. These papers all demonstrate international collaboration across multiple countries, in some cases as many as six or seven different countries. Together, they highlight the importance of international co-operation as the scope of ecology, and ecologists, grows wider.
