Attending conference – EcolChange in Oikos Finland

Text by Maarja Öpik and Lauri Laanisto

Oikos Finland held a conference in Helsinki from 31st January to 1st February to celebrate 100 years of Finnish ecology (link to conference home page). EcolChange was represented by Maarja Öpik who was invited to give a plenary lecture. She spoke about AM fungal species pools and dark diversity.

Conference was preceded by a symposium in memory of late academician Ilkka Hanski. Another EcolChange associate, Lauri Laanisto, was also attending the conference, especially because of Hanski´s symposium, as he is currently translating “Messages from the Islands” into Estonian.
