Universal theories are few and far between in ecology, but that is what makes it fascinating.
To some scientists in other fields, ecology must seem relatively straightforward. Many of the organisms live at a very human scale and are easy to access, especially in community ecology. Ecologists do not need special equipment to see and count elk. There are no electron microscopes, space telescopes or drilling rigs that can go wrong. Easy.

ISCAST notes with sadness the passing this month of Alison Lyons the widow of Professor Lawrie Lyons the founder of ISCAST.
No one operates on their own and Alison must be recognised for her contribution for at least some of Lawrie's significant achievements as well as for her own.
