From one of the conference conveners:


'Species on the Move' is an interdisciplinary conference in Hobart, Tasmania, Australia in February 2016 focusing on facilitating collaboration across disciplines on all aspects of species redistribution as a function of a changing climate.

Consequently, we are aiming to engage researchers working in a variety of disciplines (e.g. biological/physiological/ecological, socio-economic, natural resource management) and systems (e.g. temperate, tropical, polar, marine, freshwater and/or terrestrial). The conference hopes to foster the exchange of ideas, discussion of issues and collaboration across disciplines that will address the big challenges that arise from ‘species on the move’.

We see this conference as targeting scientists and natural resource managers working in the disciplines of global change, bio-geography and evolution. It will be relevant in the contexts of natural resource management, biodiversity management and conservation, and theoretical ecology. Species’ responses to climate change is a rapidly evolving research field, however, much of our progress is being made in independent research areas: e.g. understanding the process vs responding to the implications, terrestrial vs marine ecosystems, global meta-analyses vs in depth species-specific approaches. This interdisciplinary conference will play a much needed role in developing connections between these parallel streams, and across temporal and spatial scales.

To receive updates please register your interest at the website (www.speciesonthemove.com). Any help disseminating conference information, for example printing a poster for your notice board or emailing a relevant society or group, would be sincerely appreciated.

We would welcome suggestions for Theme Organisers, Workshops, Session Chairs and Plenary Speakers.

Please feel free to contact me directly for any additional information.

Hope to see you down under in 2016!
