The 4th International Conference on Global Change and Biological Invasion

Time:2020-11-16Clickes:0

 Global change and biological invasion are not only important scientific issues, but also major environmental and economic issues affecting the world in the 21st century and even the stability and security of all countries, thus drawing extensive attention by the scientific communities, governments and international NGOs. Global change and biological invasion are changing the species composition, structure and function of ecosystems, seriously threatening the global biodiversity security and human living environment. Global change and biological invasion have a complex interaction relationship. Biological invasion is not only an integral part of global change, but also an important driving factor of global change, affected by the increase in atmospheric CO2 concentration, climate warming and nitrogen deposition, etc. Related research has become a hot spot in current ecological research.

This conference is jointly sponsored by the Biological Invasion Professional Committee of the Ecological Society of China and Jiangsu University, aiming to strengthen academic exchanges and cooperation among relevant researchers.
