A British Ecological Society Special Interest Group
Dear FEG members,
It is time for me to hand over the controls of the FEG to a new Secretary, namely Dr. Alan Jones of Earthwatch, Oxford. Alan is a Visiting Research Associate at the Environmental Change Institute, Oxford, and Research Manager for the Wytham Woods Long-term Carbon Dynamics Monitoring project, which I helped establish in 2007. Alan ran an excellent FEG-sponsored event on Wytham research earlier in the year. Hence, Alan is a natural choice to succeed me as FEG Secretary.
It has been a great pleasure working on the FEG blog, with support from Thomas Starnes on the Twitter account (@BESForests) and Martha Crockatt on the Facebook group. As of today I will be relaxing with a cocktail on my private island in the Caribbean. I look forward to great things from FEG under Alan’s leadership.
I hope to see many of you at our social event at the Annual Meeting in Edinburgh!
All the best,
