ADAPTING TO GLOBAL CHANGE IN THE MEDITERRANEAN HOTSPOT CONGRESS

ADAPTING TO GLOBAL CHANGE IN THE MEDITERRANEAN HOTSPOT CONGRESS

On the 18th, 19th, and 20th of September, the Adapting to Global Change in the Mediterranean Hotspot Congress took place in Seville. This important event brought together 350 researchers at the international level from the ECOGENES project.

The event was held at the Barceló Hotel where we were able to organize a large program of talks and presentations throughout the three days of the congress.

Our world is in a constant state of change. In order to survive, individuals, communities, and entire populations must also change. These changes manifest themselves at multiple biological levels through individuals within the ecosystem.
The Adapting to Global Change in the Mediterranean Hotspot Congress (AGCM Congress) has united a number of these individual pieces to reveal several larger patterns and will continue moving beyond observations and descriptions of how the world is changing around us to explore the many ways in which organisms respond to these changes.

The congress is complemented by a parallel agenda of presentations like the inauguration of the photo exposition; “GLOBAL CHANGE” held on Avenida de la Constitución and organized by the Doñana Biological Center along with the local government of Andalusia, which coincided its inauguration with the dates of the congress.
