This July, a number of PhD students from the Rowntree and Preziosi labs presented their work at the International Congress for Conservation Biology in the stunning city of Cartagena, Colombia. It was a great week overall, lots of information, lots of networking, and of course lots of fun. It's back to the grind now in grey Manchester for most, so to congratulate the PhD students on their presentations, here they are in pictures:
