Workshop: Impacts of species interactions on range evolution

A very exciting workshop on the topic was held in September 17-20, 2012 at Gault Nature Reserve, Canada.

Twenty high-ranking scientists from around the world participated in the workshop on the impacts of species interactions on range evolution, which was jointly organised by bioGENESIS, bioDISCOVERY and the Biology Department of McGill University, Montreal. Using different examples, participants discussed how, under climate and land use change, species interactions influence range dynamics, how species and populations adapt to local conditions at range margins, and how these different factors can be included in models to better predict range changes.

The unique location of the venue in Gault Nature Reserve invited participants to smaller, informal discussions, and to walks and hikes in the reserve.
