Don’t just rely on me for longer-than-a-tweet summaries of what’s going on at ESA 2012. Mick McCarthy, who I met on Sunday and had a good chat with, has a summary post up. Joern Fisher has a summary and some comments on Jerry Franklin’s opening keynote. And Caroline Tucker of The EEB and Flow has her Monday notes up, including some comments on my student Geoff Legault’s talk. And on a slightly belated note, here’s some advice from Jacquelyn Gill on how to get the most out of the ESA meeting, much of which resonates with the advice I’ve given in various old posts.
