Honouring Wayne Getz’s Contributions to Movement Ecology

New Content Item
Wayne Getz

Prof. Wayne Getz has served as a catalyst and innovator for the discipline of Movement Ecology for decades, including production of seminal works in the field and a foundational role on the editorial board of the journal Movement Ecology. His work includes innovation in methods (from home range estimation to derivation of social mechanisms from movement data) as well as novel applications in behavioral ecology and disease ecology. These contributions have greatly advanced our understanding of spatial ecology and boosted the recognition of movement ecology as a discipline in its own right. Following these decades of contributions, Wayne has recently announced his retirement from the editorial board of the journal Movement Ecology. To recognize his excellent service to the journal and field, we are organising a Special Feature in dedication to his contributions. Interested contributors should contact guest editors Sadie Ryan (sjryan@ufl.edu) or George Wittemyer (G.Wittemyer@colostate.edu) by 1st November 2022 and all contributions should be submitted before 31st December 2022. In your letter to the editors, please clarify how your proposed submission stems from the contributions of Prof. Wayne M. Getz to the field of Movement Ecology.

Lead Editors: Dr. Sadie Ryan and Dr George Wittemyer

Deadline: 31st December 2022
