Young Ecologists Talk & Interact (YETI) is a first-of-its-kind conference for students and researchers working in the discipline of ecology in India. YETI is unique in being organized entirely by student volunteers from across the country. The event is meant to serve as a friendly, inspiring platform for early-career ecologists to present and discuss their work, exchange ideas and strike up collaborations with contemporaries from across the country.
Following the success of first YETI last year, the 2010 YETI (Second Conference) is also being organized in Bangalore and it is hoped that the YETI conference will travel to other parts of the country.
