  • ANAEE International Conference: From Experimentation to Global Prediction — ALTER-Net: Europe's ecosystem research network
    the current and potential future impacts mitigate risk or adapt to these environmental changes Ultimately societal well being is at risk It is therefore necessary to understand and predict how European ecosystems will respond to the current and future environmental changes and to develop new management mitigation and adaptation approaches This requires research across disciplinary boundaries implementation of state of the art research infrastructures RIs and sound integration of theory experiments observations and modelling approaches To this end building an integrated experimental RI such as AnaEE is a necessity if we are to collectively tackle and forecast the impacts of climate change land use changes and loss of biodiversity among ecosystems and across continents The key to anticipating and predicting long term ecosystem changes lies not only in better understanding the complexity of the processes but also in ensuring that new knowledge helps us better plan for a changing future Developing this knowledge and the facilities to foster it has tremendous potential to enrich science elucidate and tackle unknown problems improve economic models and provide decision support tools pathways towards mitigation and adaptation in the event of critical loss of ecosystem functions and services This international conference will aim to address based on large scale experimental RI in ecosystem science the following emerging topics Current and future global change experiments challenges and opportunities Understanding of risk risk mitigation and management of global ecosystem changes Ecological forecasting and research needs for food security and climate change uncertainties in models and coupled approaches Data challenge in ecosystem science moving forward Science economy interface The conference will bring together speakers from some of the most important players in the world of research and policy as well as key AnaEE consortium members to further deepen understanding among key stakeholders of how to build and
