With dark blue water in the foregound, a green island sits on the horizon in the distance under a nearly cloudless but hazy sky. The island is cone shaped, with a small plume of smoke arising from the top.

The Society of Island Biology’s 2023 conference, hosted in Italy on the island of Lipari, encouraged networking through multiple tour options for attendees. Tours and excursions included a boat ride to watch an active volcano on a nearby island. Mason Russo, an entomology Ph.D. student who attended, says these opportunities provided a casual setting for interacting with other researchers. (Photo by Mason Russo)
