Coinciding with the commemoration of the centenary of the birth of Professor Ramón Margalef, we are pleased to announce the 1st Iberian Ecological Society Meeting. 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.

 
A preliminary list of themes includes the following topics:
 

  • The interplay between ecology and evolution
  • Biogeography and macroecology
  • Biodiversity and ecological networks
  • Microbial ecology across scales
  • Functional and structural responses to water and nutrient constrains
  • Biotic interactions and ecosystem functioning
  • Extreme events footprints across ecosystems
  • The water-land interphase: from molecules to ecosystems
  • Global change impacts on biogeochemistry and ecosystem productivity
  • Biodiversity and ecosystem conservation
  • How Ecology serves the Society: services and nature-based solutions
  • Ramon Margalef legacy
