Poster session

During the lively poster session with over 30 excellent posters, participants voted for the best poster. The poster presented by Piet van den Hout on population dynamics of the bird species red knot won the competition. Several of the voters made reference to the importance of the work that was presented by him and co-authors.

The pdfs of the posters and abstracts are available below. For each thematic session three posters were selected for a 5-minute presentation during the warm-up at the start of each plenary thematic session in the main lecture hall. These presentations are also available below.
