Going in to the GLEON17 meeting, I had no idea what to expect. Prior to my arrival in Korea, my only involvement with Global Lake Ecological Observatory Network (GLEON) had been through the fellowship program, and I wasn’t sure whether my experience led by Paul Hanson, Kathie Weathers, Hilary Dugan, and Grace Hong would be representative of the whole GLEON group.

GLEON Fellowship Program: Looking Forward, Looking Back

By Jake Zwart and Hilary Dugan

As this is a transition period for the GLEON Fellowship Program, it is a good time to reflect on the past cohort and look towards the next group of fellows. The third and final workshop for the first cohort took place at the Cary Institute of Ecosystem Studies in Millbrook, New York, USA in January 2014. The fellows could not help but feel the ecosystem perspective oozing from the walls of the Cary Institute, soaked up from years of housing an abnormally high concentration of ecosystem ecologists.
