Global Change is introducing threats to the preservation of natural resources. However, up to now, it is difficult to measure with reliable accuracy the real impact of these threats and their long term consequences. Among Earth's biodiversity hotspots, the Mediterranean Basin might be suggested as a model region for Global Change research in many aspects, particularly in relation to the importance of natural resources use changes. The goal of this symposium is to discuss how plastic response may alter/change the current predictions based only on genetic change or lack of change. It should provide a more general view to common problems in the Mediterranean, gathering some leading experts in different fields that can collectively supply a cutting-edge, multifaceted view of the manifold ecological and evolutionary implications of global change. There will be room for poster presentations. At the webpage you can find all the information regarding the symposium.
