Sustainability in the European Union's Forests and the Energy Challenge

Monday 19 February 2018
Managing Europe’s forests under conflicting objectives calls for a holistic view and new tools. The ever-increasing demands on our forests are leading to conflicts concerning their management and use. The aim of the symposium is to contribute to an evidenced-based national forest management and energy policy.

Causes and consequences of plant and animal movement

Wednesday 21 March 2018
This symposium is organized prior to the defence of Jelle Treep in Utrecht.

European Conference of Tropical Ecology

Monday 26 - Friday 29 March 2018
Tropical aquatic (marine and freshwater) and terrestrial ecosystems are global biodiversity hotspots increasingly under pressure from a growing population. The complexity and unpredictability of these systems present considerable challenges for ecologists, conservation biologists and natural resource managers. The global demand for food, energy and recreation, large scale industrial land use change and anthropogenic climate change present scientific and social challenges. Ensuring resilient tropical ecosystems and provisioning a broad array of ecosystem services necessitates maintaining biodiversity as well as ecological function at all its levels. Past and present mismanagement and habitat degradation require counter measures, including habitat restoration and developing novel management approaches for resilient tropical landscape mosaics which both meet the immediate livelihood needs of oceanic, coastal, and rural communities and the ecosystem services for broader society. This presents great challenges but also opportunities.

Student Conference on Conservation Science

Tuesday 27 - Thursday 29 March 2018
The Student Conference on Conservation Science series in Cambridge, Australia, Beijing, Bangalore, New York and Hungary is the only international series of conservation conferences aimed entirely at students. SCCS helps young conservation scientists gain experience, learn new ideas and make contacts that will be valuable for their future careers.

The First Meeting of the Netherlands Society for Evolutionary Biology (NLSEB)

Wednesday 11 April 2018
With this first NLSEB meeting, we aim to bring together scientists from all disciplines working on evolutionary questions, and thereby start building a broad community of evolutionary biologists based in the Netherlands, to fuel discussion and cross-fertilization of ideas.

ECSA 57: Changing estuaries, coasts and shelf systems - Diverse threats and opportunities

Monday 3 - Thursday 6 September 2018
The structure and functioning of our estuaries and seas are shifting due to diverse drivers from local to global scales. The resulting threats to these systems are often all too apparent, yet such changes can also present new opportunities. The challenge is to harness these opportunities through new ways of thinking, scientific developments, innovative technology and more effective integration of science and management.

Sfecologie 2018 - International Conference on Ecological Sciences

22 - 25 October 2018
Sfécologie (the French Ecological Society's International Conference) will take place from 22 - 25 October 2018 at the historic Couvent des Jacobins in the old part of the city of Rennes.
