Last week, Robert has participated at the 8th Conference on Biology of Butterflies in Bangalore, India. Together with Marianne Espeland, they have organised the first symposium of the meeting entitled Interacting Butterflies: From Genes to Communities. It was opened by a plenary talk by Naomi Pierce and followed by the entire morning of interesting talks on interactions of butterflies with other organisms. Robert gave a talk on butterflies in pollination networks of higher altitudes of our Mount Cameroonian gradient. The rest of the conference was filled by numerous highly interesting talks and posters, meeting with old friends, making many new contacts, and eating of great Indian food. The next BoB conference will be organised in Prague in 2022!
