Summary of activities from 2016-17 and any other important issues or factors:
AntEco recognises the importance of the SCAR Biology Symposium as a major opportunity to bring together the community and facilitate workshops and collaborations. We have concentrated our limited funds on travel support for 35 participants (from 13 countries) with particular attention to less well- represented SCAR members and early career researchers. We also part- sponsored an APECS meeting at SCAR Biology and Polar Gordon Research Conference and Gordon Research Seminar.
