This conference will be the biggest European event in 2016 that links science, policy and practice on ecosystem services and natural capital. It will have a strong focus on practice and implementation.
This is the 22nd edition of Current Themes in Ecology. Studying ecological networks is not only crucial for understanding population dynamics and persistence, but also ecosystem processes like energy and nutrient cycling, the spread of pests and diseases, and in this way human welfare.
Within Europe, forests cover 36% of the land area and are one of the most important types of land use for biodiversity conservation, storage of carbon and provision of renewable raw materials for the bio-economy.
