The 150th Anniversary of the Ecology Concept: Linking Evolution, Physiology and Biogeography

Thursday, April 14, 2016 to Friday, April 15, 201610:00 - 17:00

In 1866 Ernst Haeckel defined Ecology as the science of the interactions among organisms and their abiotic conditions. Additional, he characterized Ecology in close relationship to Physiology, Biogeography and Evolutionary Theory. He anticipated Darwin’s Evolutionary theory as a corner stone of Ecology. 

The main aim of the symposium in Leipzig is to discuss the most important steps of the development of ecology and the consequences for future research to meet the challenges of the Anthropocene. The present developments in Ecophysiology, Evolutionary Ecology, Biogeography and Ecology itself will be discussed by Keynotes. Furthermore, in working groups we address the future scientific challenges in the given fields of research as well as the interdisciplinary benefits for Ecology and contributions by participants are very much appreciated.

We cordially want to invite you to join this symposium and discuss with experts the main steps of the development of ecology and the consequences for future research to meet the challenges of the Anthropocene. This workshop will have a capacity of 120 participants, therefore please register (free of charge) in time to retain your participation. Oral or poster presentations are welcome!
