Program  (2013/11/20 updated)

26th November 2013

Opening address by Y. Yamashita (FSERC, Kyoto Univ.), 13:00-13:20

ORAL SESSION 1: Connectivity between ecosystems and its disruption, 13:20-17:10

Session 1 will focus on the ecosystem connectivity and subsidy in natural sciences. This session will explore the latest thinking and understanding of connectivity between terrestrial, riverline and marine ecosystems from a natural science perspective. Papers will focus on physical connections, species movements and life histories, genetic connectivity or others. Understanding these linkages across broad scales is critical for managing functioning ecosystems.
