Science for Parks, Parks for Science
Symposium

Wednesday 25 March 2015 - Friday 27 March 2015, Berkeley, California
Convening natural and social scientists, managers and practitioners to launch a Second Century of stewardship for the parks, 100 years after the historic meetings at UC Berkeley that helped launch the National Park Service (NPS), this two and a half day summit (March 25-27, 2015) at UC Berkeley will feature 15 visionary plenary lectures by leading natural, physical and social scientists. The summit will also feature strategic conversations on current controversies led by panelists representing diverse viewpoints, and technical sessions of contributed papers and posters. Online registration through January 25, 2015.



Next Generation Ecology and Evolution: Genomics Tools for the Study of Ecology, Evolution, and Biomo
Symposium

Wednesday 22 April 2015, University of Calgary
The youngest BES journal, Methods in Ecology and Evolution, is now five years old. In celebration of the 5th Anniversary of the journal and its success so far, we will be holding a one-day symposium, spanning two continents, on 22 April 2015. The UK section of the symposium will be at Charles Darwin House, London and the Canadian section will be held in the University of Calgary’s Alberta Room. There will be live streaming of speakers across the two countries to end the UK event and to get things started in Calgary. We will be hearing what’s in store for the future from young, international researchers including the first winner of the Robert May Young Investigator’s Prize and a number of the journal’s Associate Editors. Topics that will be discussed include model selection, data analysis, R and much more.

52nd annual meeting of the Association for Tropical Biology and Conservation
Meeting

Monday 13 July 2015 - Thursday 16 July 2015, Honolulu, Hawaii
The theme for the conference is: "Resilience of Island Systems in the Context of Climate Change: Challenges for Biological and Cultural diversity and Conservation". Conservation of tropical biota is a pressing issue and one that is accentuated in island systems around the world. Many current hypotheses and theories in mainstream ecology have been established in island systems and have been “translated” to other continental contexts. Island systems are also particularly vulnerable to factors such as climate change, invasive species, and sea level rise. Furthermore, human cultures in such environments are also vulnerable. Thus, a theme (although not the exclusive focus) on islands is merited with particular emphasis on the relationship between conservation of both biological and cultural heritage.
