EcoTas 2013 was recently reviewed by the journal New Phytologist. The paper provides an interesting take on the conference and is well worth reading.
The review sums up the conference under four main headings:
• Ecosystem development and retrogression
• Human arrival and invasion ecology
• Changing climate
• Changing ecology
