Aquatic Macroecology Meeting - September 2016
Published: 30 March 2016
MERP is supporting the Aquatic Macroecology Meeting which is taking place in London on the 30th September 2016.
The main focus of the meeting is to foster the integration of macroecological approaches into the study of aquatic ecosystems. Most predictions about how aquatic systems respond to environmental change require a deep understanding of patterns and processes at different scales. A great deal of what is known about the key processes operating in aquatic systems arises from small-scale empirical and/or experimental studies. The growing interest in integrating macroecological approaches to advance our knowledge about aquatic systems makes this an emerging and exciting topic.
