We are excited to announce that our January Issue, including the Animal Social Networks Special Feature, is now online!All the articles in this issue are free to access – find out more about them below.
Joint with the Journal of Animal Ecology, we held a successful open call for papers, soliciting original research capturing novel methodological developments or applications of social network theory to new empirical questions.
We are pleased to announce our Machine Learning Virtual Issue is now online.
This collection of MEE articles showcases exciting advances and applications of machine learning (ML) across a wide range of ecological and evolutionary disciplines.
From the analysis of reef structure and tree crowns, to species and individual animal identification, biological overlap, content analysis, biodiversity assessment and counting animals, ML automates the extraction of meaningful information from large digital collections.
Our Associate Editors Arthur Porto, Marta Vidal-Garcia, Miguel Acevedo, Theoni Photopoulou and Sarab Sethi curated this virtual issue by selecting their favourite MEE articles that use machine learning. Find out below why these papers were chosen, and how they are helping to progress research in ecology and evolution.
Welcome to all the Methods editors, authors, reviewers and readers attending the British Ecological Society’s Festival of Ecology – the online version of our annual conference.
With a huge number of amazing talks, posters and workshops to choose from, it may be difficult to choose what to attend this week. Below is a list of conference content by our editors and authors that may be of interest to you.
If you can’t make a live session, the plenary lectures and thematic sessions are being recorded and videos will be uploaded to the conference platform the following day.
Don’t forget that presenter networking sessions run twice per day and these give you an opportunity to ask live questions while presenters of the on-demand talks and posters are online.
