French Academy of Sciences Colloquium: the fragmentation of African forests at the end of the Holocene

01.03 - 02.03.2012
Paris, France

The principal objective of this colloquium, which comes at the end of the international year of forests, is to assess the importance of time and history for understanding how ecosystems respond to climate change, a theme broadly shared between palaeoecologists, geneticists, ecologists and researchers in several disciplines of the human sciences (linguists, ethnologists, musicologists, archaeologists). The colloquium is placed in the context of alarming predictions about the consequences of climate change and of human pressures for African forests.
