«Species’ Range Shifts in a Warming World»
NIMBioS at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville, USA, May 3-5, 2017
Topic of the NIMBioS Investigative Workshop: “Methods for integrating niche models, genetics, and fossil pollen data to understand species’ range dynamics under changing climates”.
Objectives of the Investigative Workshop: Climate change is dramatically altering species’ ranges and community composition, which will impact forest productivity, carbon cycling, and global biodiversity. Understanding how species and communities responded to past climatic changes, especially to dramatic warming following Ice Ages, can help us predict and mitigate future outcomes.
The workshop «Species’ Range Shifts in a Warming World» will help link and utilize large but underused datasets developed over decades, and lay foundations for genuinely interdisciplinary, collaborative paleoecological science.
The NIMBioS Investigative Workshop will be streamed live >>
