The London Centre for Ecology & Evolution (CEE) is excited to invite guests to the Autumn symposium, hosted by King's College London. The symposium will encompass 20 speakers from across CEE’s 10 institutions, focusing upon the central theme - 'Climate change and biodiversity'.
This event is in-person only. There will be a drinks reception following the symposium. Please visit the eventbrite page for the full agenda.
Theme: Climate change and biodiversity
Biodiversity is vital for the integrity of ecosystems, providing buffering from climate change, while changing biodiversity provides a measure of climate change impact. Ecology and evolutionary biology provide important platforms to measure, evaluate, and understand biodiversity, creating predictive models of the impact of climate change, providing solutions to curb impact, and revealing the mechanisms by which organisms adapt to environmental change.
This symposium will cover these areas and more, bringing together ecologists and evolutionary biologists from across London to share their research on this important topic.
About the Centre for Ecology & Evolution
The Centre for Ecology & Evolution is a network of scientists which aims to foster collaborations between researchers working in evolution and ecology. They run a series of events hosted at partner institutions across London. These events include Darwin's Birthday Party Debate, Huxley Memorial Lecture, Wallmas and two annual symposia on specific topics in evolution and ecology.
The CEE is run by a cross-institutional steering committee including: University College London, the Institute of Zoology (Zoological Society of London), Natural History Museum, Imperial College, Queen Mary, Royal Holloway, Royal Veterinary College, Linnean Society, Royal Botanical Gardens, Kew, the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine and King's College London.
