As most of you already know, I had to pull out of this year’s virtual ESA meeting. To partially make up for pulling out, below is an extended video version of what I would’ve said.
Heads up #1: this is a full-length research talk (actually, it’s even a bit too long for that), not an ESA-length talk, so grab a drink and get comfortable. Or, you know, fast forward a lot. I didn’t bother to edit down the research talk I already had semi-prepared.
Heads up #2: Speaking of semi-prepared…it’s not an especially polished talk. In my own defense, I was aiming for a casual vibe, like if you were talking to me about ecology in a bar. But if I were giving the talk for a live audience (which I’d love to do, I really miss giving live talks…), I would definitely prepare a crisp, polished version.
Heads up #3: I had a beer during the talk. Like I said, I was aiming for a “talking about ecology in a bar” vibe. Also, you get to see my back yard. YMMV as to whether those are features or bugs. 🙂
