RESUMEN DEL EVENTO
IThis international conference will host the last meeting of a project funded by Belmont Forum that aims to evaluate the impact of climate change on mountain species. This project is expected to forecast potential impacts of future climate change from different perspectives and to consider the importance of microrefugia to the medium-term persistence of biodiversity. Topics on climate include past and future changes, palaeoecology, ancient and modern DNA, vegetation modeling, agent-based modeling and initiatives for the conservation of mountain tree species. This conference will bring together scientists from different disciplines (vegetation and climate modelers, geneticists (modern and fossil DNA), palaeoecologists, palaeoclimatologists, conservation biologists) as well as stakeholders. The «backbone discipline» of the conference is the past climate changes and their future impact on the ecosystems.
