Methods in Ecology and Evolution Anniversary Symposium

The youngest BES journal, Methods in Ecology and Evolution, is now five years old. In celebration of the 5th Anniversary of the journal and its success so far, we held a one-day symposium, spanning two continents, on 22 April 2015. The UK section of the symposium was at Charles Darwin House, London and the Canadian section was held in the University of Calgary’s Alberta Room. There was live streaming of speakers across the two countries to end the UK event and to get things started in Calgary.
