Frontiers and Horizons in Ecology will use Twitter before, during and after the meeting for discussion and questions. This will encourage participation from all delegates and allow conversations to expand beyond the immediacy of the physical conference venue.
• Before the conference, delegates will be consulted regarding important advances in ecology from the 1970s to the present • During the meeting comments and questions on Twitter will be collated and summarised with respect to oral presentations and posters • After the conference delegates will be consulted to gather their final views of ecology in the immediate future and with regards to the summary document
