Join the British Ecological Society for a webinar on ecological resilience! This online meeting complements a new Special Feature being published in Journal of Animal Ecology, Functional Ecology and Journal of Ecology: Reconciling resilience across ecological systems, species and subdisciplines.
Date: Wednesday 29 September 2021
Time: 16:00-17:15 (BST)
Location: Online (Zoom)
This online meeting will showcase the latest cutting-edge research on the topic of ecological resilience and is being chaired by Pol Capdevila, Rob Salguero-Gómez and Iain Stott. We will hear from four guest speakers whose research will be published as part of the Resilience Special Feature (names to be announced shortly). There will also be an opportunity to ask the panel your questions.
Resilience has emerged as a key concept in ecology and conservation biology to understand and predict ecosystem responses to global change. In its broadest sense, resilience describes the ability of an ecosystem to resist, and recover from, a disturbance. However, the application of such a concept in different sub-disciplines of ecology and in different study systems has resulted in a wide disparity of definitions and ways of quantifying ecological resilience. This webinar and the related Special Feature will provide an overview of how ecologists define, quantify, compare and predict resilience across different study systems.
An eagerness to break taxonomic frontiers within resilience research and integrate across ecological sub-disciplines motivates the Special Feature and this webinar will showcase the exciting work being carried out in this field.
