Mercedes had a wonderful time in Palma de Mallorca where she gave two invited lectures: one, a plenary in the V Symposium on Ecological Networks (Econet 21, organized by IMEDEA and IFISC this year); the other, a public lecture in Spanish on marine ecosystems entitled “ Ecosistemas complejos y transiciones criticas en nuestros mares cambiantes”.  As a result, she had a live radio and newspaper interviews on climate change, environmental challenges, and infectious diseases. Thank you to IMEDEA and IFISC for organizing all this!
