The conference motto
Dimensions of Ecology: From Global Change to Molecular Ecology
addresses the complexity and the broadness of current ecological research. There is also a local reference as it comprises the name of two ecological study programmes of the University of Bayreuth: The graduate programme (M.Sc.) Global Change Ecology within the Elite Network of Bavaria and the study programme (M.Sc.) Molecular Ecology.
Whereas the focus in "Global Change Ecology" is to link natural science perspectives to global change and approaches in social science disciplines, "Molecular Ecology" tries to understand molecular adaptations and interactions of organisms in a changing environment.
Definitively there is a broad range in between. So we are looking forward to see your presentation of the dimensions of ecology!
