Ecologists use null models every day. But we rarely use them when measuring gender bias in academia.
We seek out ecologists with diverse backgrounds and perspectives to highlight their work and share their stories and experiences. Check out this week’s Ecologist Spotlight featuring Cecilia O’Leary!

Recovery of imperilled species requires a diverse set of conservation strategies. One strategy, known as species reintroductions, is to release individuals to areas where they historically resided but have recently been extirpated. Here, we contend that the term repatriation should be used in lieu of reintroduction to enhance clarity when discussing conservation initiatives.
“How I Work” interviews demonstrate that there are many ways to be successful in academia and students, post-docs, and professors need to find the approach that is best for them.
We are all influenced by researchers as we navigate the world of STEM. There are negative interactions that make us question our decision to pursue research, but it is the positive interactions and the encouragement of a few that we would like to highlight on International Women’s Day. In this post, we want to thank and celebrate some of the women in ecology that have welcomed us into this field, encouraged us to pursue careers in ecology, and guided us to success.
