Highlight innovative actions, future research and applications! This is the objective of the International Conference on Functional Ecology 2018. This event will bring together scientists specialized in the functional ecology of organisms, populations, communities and ecosystems.
FEC2018 aims to take stock of research in functional ecology, focusing on material and energy flows and mobilizing long-term observation, experimentation and modelling. Global changes, threats to biodiversity, and remediation of degraded ecosystems will be addressed in the case of forest, natural, cultivated and urban ecosystems. It is also a space for interaction between experienced researchers, young researchers, engineers,... and research facility.
The program has just been announced: submit your abstract!
The event is composed of five daily sessions and a workshop on AnaEE France infrastructures. Registrations are open and you can now submit an abstract. All levels of research and ecosystem types (crops, grasslands, shrubs, forests, marines, lakes, rivers, oceans, urban and mining ecosystems) will be considered. Several sessions will be devoted to the functioning of forest ecosystems, which will be the main theme this year. Sessions will be delivered in English.
Local and national partnership
The 2018 session is organised by INRA Grand Est-Nancy and AgroParisTech-Nancy centre with the support of AnaEE France, AnaEE Europe and the Nancy-Freiburg-Zürich international network (NFZ. forestnet). The University of Lorraine and the CNRS are also partners. This conference is a continuation of the "functional ecology days" held in recent years.
