Cross-scale ecology at the Ecological Society of America Meeting in Baltimore!

Our Organized Oral Session has been approved and a date has been assigned.  ESA 2015 is getting closer evry day (abstract deadline is coming up on February 26th!), and with it the centennial celebration of the Ecological Society of America.  We’ve managed to recruit a great group of speakers to talk about ecological research that crosses scales of time, rather than space.  Many of these studies share approaches with what we generally consider to be ‘cross-scale’ ecology, which tends to be spatially focused, but the must also deal with the additional complexity of temporal uncertainty and changing relationships between communities, climate, biogeochemical cycling and disturbance at decadal, centennial and millennial scale.

Paleoecological patterns, ecological processes, modeled scenarios: Crossing scales to understand an uncertain future” will be held on the afternoon of Wednesday, August 12, 2015, from 1:30 PM – 5:00 PM.  We have a great line up of speakers confirmed, please remember to add us to your ESA schedule!
