EAFES Symposium ES07 -- 21 March 9:00-12:00 Room A

Response of populations and trophic interactions to climate changes: terrestrial vs. aquatic systems and temperate vs. tropical regions

Organizers: HSIEH, Chih-hao (National Taiwan Univ.), MIKI, Takeshi (National Taiwan Univ.)

Climate change is one of the most important drivers of biodiversity loss and change in population, community, and ecosystem services. We aim to better understand commonalities and singularities of ecosystem responses at the level of (1) primary producers, (2) producer-consumer interactions, and (3) biodiversity in the communities between different climatic regions (temperate vs. tropical) and different ecosystems (aquatic vs. terrestrial), through five speakers from Taiwan and Japan. We will also invite Dr. DOI Hideyuki (Hiroshima Univ., Japan) and Dr. CHEN I-Ching (Academia Sinica, Taiwan) as commentators to facilitate a discussion for launching comparative ecosystems studies between Taiwan and Japan.
