The conference “Aquatic Biodiversity and Ecosystems” takes place from the 30th of August to the 4th of September 2015 in Liverpool, UK.
The Aquatic Biodiversity and Ecosystems meeting is a conference for aquatic scientists (both marine and freshwater) with a focus on evolution, interactions and long-term change – particularly how these shape patterns of biodiversity and the relationships between biodiversity and ecosystem functioning. The scope is deliberately broad encompassing natural and highly modified habitats in both marine and freshwater aquatic systems. Ecology and Evolutionary Biology are the key focus, but the meeting also caters for an interdisciplinary approach to studying and managing aquatic ecosystems, especially unravelling local and regional scale impacts from global climate driven change!
The broad themes of the conference are:
- Global Environmental Change
- Fisheries & Aquaculture
- Evolutionary Biology
- Conservation, Management & Policy
- Biodiversity, Ecosystem Functioning & Services
- Dispersal & Connectivity
- Food webs & Trophic Dynamics
- General Aquatic Biology
Abstract submissions are open until 31st March 2015
