European Conference of Tropical Ecology and the Annual Conference of the Society for Tropical Ecology 2016

University of Göttingen and the German Primate Center (

The overarching topic will be “Tropical diversity, ecology and land use”, reflecting the broad spectrum of tropical research in Göttingen on one hand and the need for integrating research and land use practices in the tropics.  The conference will take place from Tuesday 23 to Friday 26 February 2016, at the Faculty of Geoscience and Geography of the University of Göttingen.

Science@SAFE2014 welcomes you to attend a joint meeting between the S.A.F.E. Project and the NERC Human-Modified Tropical Forest research programme. The meeting will be held in the Hamilton Building, Silwood Park Campus, Imperial College London Ascot, SL5 7PY, UK on 1-3 OCTOBER 2014.

The aim of this meeting is to present findings from one of the world’s largest ecological experiments to understand how logging, deforestation and forest fragmentation modify tropical rainforests and associated ecosystems services.

By combining experimental and observational data with modelling, we hope to gain a better understanding of how this impacts biodiversity and biogeochemical cycles, for example, and the complex links between ecosystem functioning and the distribution of species.

Science@S.A.F.E. is a platform for researchers to come together and present findings and on-going research from projects carried out at the S.A.F.E. site, Sabah, Malaysia. A major goal of this research is to identify key issues and ecological responses such that sustainable management protocols can be developed in the future.

The meeting is free and open to everyone to facilitate networking and collaboration within the growing S.A.F.E. community. S.A.F.E. researchers are invited to submit an abstract for a talk or poster, and to suggest workshop ideas.
