Workshop: Impacts of species interactions on range evolution

This workshop, organised through the EcoEvol activity of bioDISCOVERY in conjunction with the Department of Biology at McGill University, will explore how ecological interactions influence range evolution under environmental change. Upon invitation only.

The aims of the workshop are to identify

1) the progress made to date in our understanding of how different classes of ecological interactions hinder or foster range adaptation

2) the likelihood that entire communities may or may not shift together, resulting in the assembly of entirely new communities with different functional characteristics

3) the joint role that evolution and species interactions might play in defining the future spatial distribution of biodiversity and ecosystem services at large spatial scales.

For more information, see the background document.

The aims of the workshop are to identify: 1) the progress made to date in our understanding of how different classes of ecological interactions hinder or foster range adaptation, 2) the likelihood that entire communities may or may not shift together, resulting in the assembly of entirely new communities with different functional characteristics, and 3) the joint role evolution and species interactions might play in defining the future spatial distribution of biodiversity and ecosystem services at large spatial scales. Two outcomes are likely: 1) The identification of priority foci for research that will guide future directions for international research initiatives (like DIVERSITAS and IPBES), 2) a synthesis paper for a journal like Ecology Letters or TREE, that would aim to lay out a framework for this area of research
