European Conference of Tropical Ecology (GTOE) "(re)connecting tropical biodiversity in space and time" - Brussels 6-10 February 2017. CALL FOR SESSIONS AND WORKSHOPS

 

 

We are pleased to announce that the “European Conference of Tropical Ecology” – the annual scientific meeting of the Society for Tropical Ecology (GTOE) – will be organized in 2017 for the first time in Brussels, Belgium. The overarching topic will be “(re)connecting tropical biodiversity in space and time”. It highlights both the importance of integrating fundamental sciences inferring past processes (e.g. paleoecology, evolution, social history…) to understand current patterns of biodiversity, and the urgent need to reconnect patches of fragmented landscapes if we wish to conserve tropical biodiversity and ecological services of tropical ecosystems for future generations.

 

 

When: 6-10 February 2017

Where: Brussels, Belgium

Deadline for the CALL FOR SESSIONS AND WORKSHOPS: Please submit your proposal, until the end of august 2016, on-line on the conference webpage

 

 

This conference aims to connect researchers at all levels of their career and from all disciplines relevant to tropical ecology, and to promote scientific exchanges and cooperation in a friendly atmosphere. Students and young scientists are very welcome and to encourage them, we will make our best to maintain costs accessible to all. The conference addresses also topics relevant for tropical ecosystem managers, conservationists and policy makers, who are encouraged to participate and exchange with researchers. Contributions from all fields within tropical ecology are welcome: Ecology, evolution and conservation of tropical ecosystems in a changing world, Tropical ecosystem functioning and ecological services, Agro-ecosystems, human impact and the future of tropical biodiversity, for discussing major advances and future challenges in tropical ecology.
