WorkshopMovement Ecology and Biodiversity Research – perspectives of recent advancements in detecting animal movement for understanding and predicting biodiversity dynamics

04. Juli 2012 bis 06. Juli 2012

In face of a rapidly changing environment, posing a severe threat to global biodiversity, a crucial next step in biodiversity research is to move from rather descriptive approaches and lists of community structuring factors to more mechanistic research. This includes the need to better understand biodiversity dynamics in space and time and across scales.

This workshop was held during three days, consisting of key note lectures and discussions in subgroups as well as in the plenary. The workshop was supposed to bring together experts from different fields of biodiversity research with scientists that work on the cutting edge of movement ecology.
