Following the successful meeting held in Nanjing, China (June 18-20, 2013), we are proud to announce the upcoming Global Change Research Symposium to be held in Ostuni, Brindisi, Southern Italy on September 16-18, 2014 (http://www.global2014.it/).
Concern for ecosystem services and human well-being is one of the most compelling reasons to study the effects of global change, but in order to intervene, policymakers and resource managers need predictions of how humans and ecosystems respond, and recover from, anthropogenic stressors.
This Symposium will bring international leading scientists from relevant fields to discuss the theme of how global change research can support management decisions and interventions that are most urgently needed to mitigate different stressors and protect ecosystem services and human well-being.
Authors willing to present a paper must submit an abstract (400 words) written in English by February 28, 2014.
