|Conference| Community Ecology for the 21st Century — From Genes to Ecosystems

image005

Hosted by CIBIO/​InBIO-​UE, the conference “Community ecology for the 21st century: From genes to ecosystems” will take place in the historical city of Évora, from the 17th to the 19th of October, 2016. 

Of the many problems confronting society on the veil of the 21st Century, one of the gravest is the likelihood that modern humans may so change the intricate workings of the earth’s ecosystems that they will no longer be able to provide the support that human culture requires for its existence.

Yet, our ability to understand and predict the effects of human actions on species and communities is still severely limited. 

During this short conference we will discuss the workings of nature at all levels of organisation, from genes to ecosystems. We will focus on recent advances in ecological theory, as well as on some of the new trends in experimental (macro) ecology and next-​generation sequencing that provides unprecedented opportunities to measure and monitor changes in the natural environment.
