Viewing events tagged ecosystem collapse
May 8, 2018, 9 a.m. - May 9, 2018, 5 p.m. at Shine Dome, Canberra, Australia
The Boden Research Conference "Ecological Surprises and Rapid Collapse of Ecosystems in a Changing World" aim to explore the relationships between stress build-up, critical transitions, tipping points, and collapse, and search for commonalities. Researchers from a range of disciplines including ecology, ecophysiology, population biology, human health, disaster science, physics, mathematics, and economics, as well as environmental managers, are welcome to attend the event and explore this topic. The Red List of Ecosystems (RLE) will be there too with two presentations (Ecosystem collapse: from science to policy - Prof. David Keith, Developing a standardized definition of ecosystem collapse for risk assessment - Dr. Lucie Bland) and a workshop (Dr. Emily Nicholson and Dr. Lucie Bland).
