On the 19th of December the first “Flanders Annual Meeting of Ecology” or FAME was held at the University of Ghent (campus Ledeganck) back-to-back with the ninth FWO research network “An eco-evolutionary network of biotic interactions (EVENET)” meeting on “Eco-evolutionary Dynamics”. FAME is parallel to the NAEM (Netherlands Annual Ecology Meeting) and organized by a group of academic ecologists and NECOV (Dutch – Flemish Ecological Society). The aim is to bring together researchers around crucial topics and topical networks with respect to ecology.
Jonas vdC presented a poster outlining his ongoing and future research regarding the development of TreeWatch.net: “Long-term forest vitality assessment via real-time growth and sap flow measurements”. This was done during the LTER (The Long Term Ecological Research Network) symposium which was one of the six parallel symposia.
