The Ecological Society has just established a Fellows Program, and part of the program is an Early Career Fellows Program designed to recognize leaders of the next generation of ecologists. The first cohort, named in 2013, consisted of 6 outstanding young ecologists. The symposium will showcase the research efforts of the leaders of this new generation of ecologists. Talks will span a range of areas in ecology and will highlight new directions in ecological research. The symposium will also demonstrate how to start a successful research program as exemplified by these six speakers who have already been recognized by ESA.
