The Gordon Research Seminar on Unifying Ecology Across Scales is a unique forum for graduate students, post-docs, and other scientists with comparable levels of experience and education to present and exchange new data and cutting edge ideas.
This meeting aims to promote the integration of subfields of ecology working across biological scales (from individuals to ecosystems) to efficiently advance our fundamental understanding of ecological systems. As ecology is under increasing pressure to provide evidence-based guidance for solutions to the global environmental crisis, moving ecology forward as quickly and efficiently as possible has become a priority. To continue the ongoing discussion on how to unify ecology, this meeting discusses approaches based on individuals, common currencies and theory. Topics include but are not limited to: trait-based ecology, theoretical ecology, network ecology, macroecology, macrophysiology, biogeography, stoichiometry, metabolism and organismal physiology.
The seminar will feature approximately 10 talks and 2 poster sessions. All attendees are expected to actively participate in the GRS, either by giving an oral presentation or presenting a poster. Therefore, all applications must include an abstract.
The seminar chair will select speakers from abstracts submitted by April 21, 2018. Those applicants who are not chosen for talks and those who apply after the deadline to be considered for an oral presentation will be expected to present a poster. In order to participate, you must submit an application by the date indicated in the Application Information section above.
