This Functional Ecology conference will present the latest research on how organisms acquire and then make use of resources in metabolism, movement, growth, reproduction, as well as on how ecosystems cycle, store or lose resources through biotic and abiotic processes. There will be a plenary address on ‘Soils for food security and the climate’ presented by C. Chenu, INRA AgroParisTech Thiverval-Grignon, and 5 predefined sessions as well as open sessions:

  1. Species responses to climate change and resource availability: flexibility mechanisms from the individual to the population (keynote J. Flexas, Universitat de les Illes Balears, Deparment of Biology)
  2. Stoichiometry of biogeochemical cycles at various scales (keynote M. Danger, Université de Lorraine, Metz ;
  3. Functional ecology and agro-ecology: deepening the links (keynote S. Barot, Institut d’Ecologie et des Sciences de l’Environnement-Paris)
  4. Enhancing the dialogue between modellers and experimentalists (keynote F. Ewert, Leibniz Centre for Agricultural Landscape Research, Berlin)
  5. Emerging approaches and tools in functional ecology;
  6. Open sessions (for presentations out of the above sessions)

Submission of oral and poster presentations is open until March 7th.

Various booths will present AnaEE France services and the last day of the meeting (March 31 from 8:30 to 12:30) will be devoted to 3 parallel workshops (run in French) on: 1) Harmonisation des méthodes et mesures , 2) Sémantique, bases de données, métadonnées, portail de ressources, 3) Analyse de la biodiversité.
