Aquatic plants research and conservation in Mediterranean ecosystems

We would like to invite you to participate in the 16th International Symposium on Aquatic Plants, which will be held from 15 to 19 of June in Aarhus, Denmark, and especially to the Session 8 ‘’Aquatic plants research and conservation in Mediterranean ecosystems’’

For more information please visit the site.

Short description: Mediterranean ecosystems have a long history of human disturbances and water scarcity exacerbates pressures around water bodies (i.e. morphological changes, water abstraction, irregular water flow, pollution, eutrophication, water logging, and leisure activities). Ecosystems in warm climates are more sensitive to anthropogenic pressures, such as eutrophication and water extraction, than similar ecosystems in temperate or cold climates. In this session, we welcome submissions addressing the factors that influence aquatic macrophytes richness, diversity, and abundance and habitat features, as well as management and conservation issues in Mediterranean and other warm climate ecosystems (e.g. streams, rivers, lakes, lagoons, ponds, etc).
