2nd edition of the Ramon Margalef Summer Colloquia

07.07 - 18.07.2014  
Barcelona, Spain

** What Ecology can learn from natural and human-induced disturbances: A cross-system view **

As this summer is the 10th anniversary of Ramon Margalef’s passing away, we would like to make this year’s colloquia very special, and the topic,
 exceptionally, will cross the marine boundary to reach a planet view, under the 
motto: “What Ecology can learn from natural and human-induced disturbances – A
 cross-system view”.

The colloquia will include theoretical and practical
 activities, all around this central topic, as well as group discussion sessions. The registration deadline has been extented past the 14 March. For more see:
