Sue Healy organized a symposium on Animal Cognition at the 9th International Symposium of Integrative Zoology in Xining, China. It was a truly amazing experience: we met and made many new friends, both at the conference and around Xining and Beijing. I can't wait to go back!
Me, Sue Healy, Mark Mainwaring and Jim Reynolds organized a symposium on The form and Function of Bird Nests at the EOU2017 in Turku, Finland. I presented some of Alexis Breen's PhD work (see poster below) while she was busy running an experiment back home in St Anderws.
