Ecology at multiple scales

IX INTECOL International Congress of Ecology, jointly held with the 90th Annual Meeting of the Ecological Society of America (ESA)

7th to 12th August 2005

What was the event?

One of the dramatic changes in ecological research has been the recognition of an ability to conduct research at multiple scales (spatial, temporal and biological).

As our insights at differing scales grow, so does our capacity to link information across scales. The ultimate result will be a greater scientific understanding and capacity to communicate ecological results to policy communities from local to regional to global scales.

This joint meeting of national and international ecological societies offered a venue to present and evaluate ecological information at multiple scales, and especially to focus on and incubate cross-scale linkages.

Eric Casella of Forest Research presented:

"Determinants of foliage clumping in two-year-old short rotation coppice poplar canopies: assessment from 3-D plant mock-up"
