#ESA2016 is in full swing, and #ESASciComm is a big topic this year. Between our smashing success #upgoESA Ignite session….
…and our dynamic interactive scicomm workshop…
…inspiration and discussion about #scicomm is trending. And, there’s more scicomm to come throughout the week!
We’ll be re-capping on this blog, ESA’s EcoTone blog is going to town with #ESA2016 scicomm highlights, and PLoS Ecology Reoporting Fellows are going to be writing up the week, live. Plus, there’s a cosmos of science blogging that happens all the time, and many great bloggers are in attendance at this year’s conference.
