Researchers from IFISC and IMEDEA organize the V Symposium on ecological networks (ECONET) in Palma. The event will be held between November 10 and 12, and will bring together, for the first time, biologists and theoretical physicists who work on network theory or use it as an approach to understand the structure and functioning of biological communities. ECONET is defined as an excellent opportunity to share methodologies and results between these two approaches to the study of ecological networks and aims to serve as a platform to develop joint future projects.
Among the numerous presentations by researchers from all over the world, the keynote speakers will be Mercedes Pascual (University of Chicago), Yamir Moreno (Universidad de Zaragoza), Shai Pilosof (Ben-Gurion University of the Negev), Carlos Melián (Swiss Federal Institute of Aquatic Science and Technology) and Anna Eklöf (Linköping University).
The symposium will also offer the informative talk on the ecological changes that marine ecosystems are undergoing entitles Ecosistemas complejos y transiciones críticas en nuestros mares cambiantes. The talk will be given by the researcher Mercedes Pascual in the Auditorium Hall of the Caixa Forum in Palma on Wednesday 10 at 19 pm.
