Invitation to the 1st Meeting of the Iberian Ecological Society & XIV AEET Meeting next Feb 2019

1st Meeting of the Iberian Ecological Society & XIV AEET Meeting

“Ecology: an integrative science in the Anthropocene”

4th-7th February 2019, Barcelona Spain

Coinciding with the commemoration of the centenary of the birth of Professor Ramón Margalef, we are pleased to announce the 1st Iberian Ecological Society Meeting. The conference is aimed to be the kickoff of SIBECOL (Sociedad Ibérica de Ecología) a new scientific society, joining ecologists from Iberian countries, whatever the system or approach they work on.

The Asociación Española de Ecología Terrestre (AEET), the Asociación Ibérica de Limnologia (AIL), the Sociedad Española de Etología y Ecología Evolutiva (SEEEE) and the Sociedade Portuguesa de Ecologia (SPECO), as well as a group of Iberian Marine Ecologists, support this initiative. The conference will concur with the XIV AEET Meeting.

The conference will address the great transdisciplinary and integrative background of Ecology. The objective of the conference is to highlight those crosscutting ecological concepts shared by the different branches of this discipline (limnology, marine ecology, terrestrial ecology, theoretical ecology), regardless of the study system. We seek to exchange ideas and approaches that are common to different specialties in Ecology, and to provide a platform to discuss how ecological sciences can help to deal with the huge environmental transformations induced by human societies.

The conference will be held at University of Barcelona (UB), Biology Faculty building (Diagonal 643, 08028 Barcelona).
