Subject: Upcoming Meeting: Ecological Thresholds in Aquatic Ecosystems:
The Role of Climate Change, Anthropogenic Disturbance, and Invasive
Species Progress Review
EPA's National Center for Environmental Research (NCER) is sponsoring a
meeting to discuss research on ecological thresholds in aquatic
Day one of the meeting will review the progress of 11 NCER exploratory
that are developing methods to predict ecological thresholds based on
retrospective studies in rivers, lakes, and estuaries. Day two of the
will conclude the exploratory discussion and as well as preview 6 new
global ecosystem grants that will study the links between climate change
ecological thresholds for linked terrestrial and aquatic systems. Both
grants are exploring the effects of threshold exceedances on the
ecosystems, the services provided by these ecosystems, and methods to
these resources in the face of potential thresholds. This meeting is
all who are interested in this new and exciting research area.
Review the on-line agenda and please register by next Friday June 1,
you are interested in attending.
Please pass along the announcement to others who may be interested.
