This main topic is all about past, present and future change at the species level (e.g. genetic, behavioural) and/or ecosystem level (e.g. trophic ecology, hydrology).

For this topic the changes, if applicable, can have different abiotic/biotic and natural/human caused drivers.

There are 3 main sub-themes for postgraduate speakers to apply for, based on the location of their research;

1) Estuary/ Coastal environments

A relaxed and motivational environment for all students

"The MBA Postgraduate Conference Exeter 2021 offered the possibility to discuss current scientific issues in a young, relaxed, and vibrant environment. .The organisers encouraged traditional or novel (e.g. "explaining my PhD to my Mum") poster format, which gave me the opportunity to present a poster to communicate science to a wider audience!"

Conferences can seem intimidating, but the MBA postgraduate conference was fun, friendly and interactive.

"I felt included and totally engaged. I especially enjoyed the interactive creative workshops around science communication which provided unique tips and tricks as a modern day academic. The conference was a safe space for young researchers to present their work and to connect with more senior academics. The experience has made me more confident to present my own work in a conference style setting."
