23 de October 2018
The conference will be held at University of Barcelona (UB). 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.
Coinciding with the commemoration of the centenary of the birth of Professor Ramón Margalef, we are pleased to announce the 1st Iberian Ecological Society Meetingm “Ecology: an integrative science in the Anthropocene”. 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 Meeting is promoted by the Associació Espanyola d’Ecologia Terrestre (AEET), the Associació Ibèrica de Limnologia (AIL), the Societat Espanyola d’Etologia i Ecologia Evolutiva (SEEEE) and the Societat Portuguesa d’Ecologia (SPECO).
The organizing committee has representatives of Universitat de Barcelona, CREAF, Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona, Universitat de Girona, el Institut de Ciències del Mar, el Centre d’ Estudis Avançats de Blanes (CEAB-CSIC) and ICRA
