The Workshop of the integrated Climate Change Biology (iCCB) programme gathered 22 scientists from countries including Kenya, Uganda, Ethiopia, Swaziland, Cameroon, Chile, Germany, France, Finland, United Kingdom, and United States, as well as 20 students from the university in Nairobi. The group “Climatic changing dynamics in ecosystems of Rwenzori Mts and Mt Elgon” led by Raymond Katebaka and colleagues took part in the workshop, with the aim of fostering future research collaboration and development of possible IUBS program. We also had a representative from “The Evolution of Terrestrial Ecosystems” program from USA (Smithsonian Institute, NHM, Washington DC) to foster future collaboration. It took place in Nairobi, Kenya from 6th-8th March 2017.

iCCB Conference 2017

Congress: Traits past, present, and future: Quantitative Approaches to paleontology, conservation and climate change biology in Africa

Nairobi, Natural History Museum of Kenya, Kenya, 6 - 8 March 2017

This event will bring together paleontologists, ecologists, and quantitative biologists to discuss how data from paleontology, modern ecology, and conservation biology can be integrated to provide a comprehensive framework for monitoring and measuring ecosystem structure and function through space and time (see first circular, pdf file).
