Forum for improving exchange between palaeoecology and ecology for more integrated use of long-term ecological data.
Ecological dynamics play out over a range of spatial and temporal scales, including those well beyond a human lifetime. The Palaeoecology group exists to improve exchange between palaeoecology and ecology to encourage more integrative use of long-term ecological data.
