The « Ecological-Economic Resilience of Ecosystems » symposium will focus on the concept of resilience for the quantitative analysis and management of ecosystems. Resilience, which is often related to sustainability and vulnerability, describes the ability of a system to cope with shocks arising from natural or anthropogenic events such as climatic catastrophes, pollution, financial crisis or epidemics. The intrinsic complexity of these ecosystems and socio-ecosystems at the interface of human dynamics and natural dynamics requires interdisciplinary approaches and in particular an ecological-economic viewpoint.
In this context, the symposium will pay particular attention to the following applications: Marine or coastal ecosystems, water resources, agrosystems and viticulture, forest ecosystems and heath systems. The symposium intends to give major insights into the following issues: How to quantify ecological-economic resilience? What are its drivers? Which strategies and public policies can improve this resilience?
The interdisciplinary symposium will bring together economists, ecologists, epidemiologists, and mathematicians. Keynote lectures will be given by internationally recognized researchers in the field:
Stefan Baumgärtner (Germany),
Quentin Grafton (Australia),
Michel Loreau (France).
You are invited to submit a full paper in English before February 18th, 2018. All Submissions have to be sent to:
