Jul 23 2017 to Jul 27 2017 International Congress for Conservation Biology 2017 Cartagena, Colombia Will focus on Insights for sustaining life on Earth, responding to the need for conservation science to help create a better tomorrow for both biodiversity and people who depend upon it.
Aug 20 2017 to Aug 23 2017 3rd International Workshop on Trait-based Approaches to Ocean Life Solstrand, Bergen, Norway Trait distributions in the ocean emerge through evolution and natural selection, and are mediated by the environment, biological interactions, anthropogenic drivers, and organism behavior. Because trait variations within and across communities lead to variation in the rates of crucial ecosystem functions such as carbon export, this mechanistic approach sheds light on how variability in the environment, including climate change, impacts marine ecosystems, biogeochemical cycles, and associated feedbacks to climate and society.
