That is disappointing, but expected news Rowan. The best decision right
now. For everyone, I was looking forward to leading one of the sessions,
and had planned to make some printed materials available to the
participants. Given that this won't happen for some time, I have decided to
convert much of it, and more yet to be written, to an online format. The
material that I will be posting are early sections of a longer work on
Systems Paleoecology. Feel free to take a look and use it as you will. My
hope is that it will help to keep interested students engaged during these
difficult and unusual times. Links to the series so far are provided below.
And everyone keep healthy and safe.
