If you are an undergraduate or graduate student presenting your application of conceptual and graphical models, mathematical analysis, or computer simulation to ecological phenomena at this year’s annual meeting in Minneapolis, ESA’s Theoretical Ecology section invites you to compete for their 14th annual Alfred J.
