Ecology in an Era of Globalization will be organized around three
subthemes: invasive species, human migration, and production systems. The
conference will begin with an evening plenary session, followed by three full
days featuring keynote speakers, oral presentations, and poster sessions. Oral
presentations and posters will include both invited submissions and
contributions solicited in an open call for papers. Workshops will also be
organized around the three subthemes.
The invasive species subtheme will address such topics as dispersal of invasive
plant and animal species, emerging diseases, and resistance of local ecosystems
to invasive species and disease.
The human migration subtheme will address the environmental effects of
international and local emigration and immigration on recipient and source
areas. Potential topics include infrastructure development needs and impacts,
effects on land cover, and land use impacts.
The production subtheme will focus on ecosystem transformations, including
land use change, required to produce goods and services for human use. Potential
topics include the effects of changes in forest and agricultural policy on
economies, biodiversity, and ecosystems throughout the Americas.
