1st Iberian Ecological Society Meeting (SIBECOL 2019) - Extended deadline until Friday, 13th July 2018 at 12:00 a.m.

We are excited to let you know that we, Sergi Díez, Andrea G. Bravo, Juan Carlos Nóvoa, Silvia G. Acinas, Victor Matamoros, Albert Palanques and Luis R. Vieira, are organising a special session for the 1st Iberian Ecological Society Meeting (SIBECOL 2019) (http://congresosociedadibericaecologia2019.net), 4th - 7th February 2019, Barcelona, Spain

21. Understanding the contaminants in a changing world: linking terrestrial and aquatic systems

The toxicity and spread of pollutants (heavy metals and emerging pollutants, POPs, micro plastics, etc) in the landscape has raised international concerns. Understanding the processes and fate of contaminants at the interface of terrestrial and aquatic systems is a prerequisite for the development of remediation and risk management strategies that result in a decrease of the contaminants in the environment and biota. Moreover, future environmental changes such as increases in temperature, land use, runoff, brownification, and primary production may alter the biogeochemical cycling of the contaminants in both terrestrial and aquatic (i.e. continental and marine) environments. We seek presentations revealing contaminants effects, transformation, attenuation and/or transport across terrestrial and aquatic ecosystems at a range of scales from the individual catchment to continents and oceans. Contributions addressing the role of ecosystem function in pollution remediation (e.g. wetland systems) or assessing the risks of pollutants for human health (e.g. food safety) are also encouraged.

All abstracts must be submitted through the online form for being considered. Abstracts received by email will not be accepted.

Submission of abstracts is available at: http://congresosociedadibericaecologia2019.net/CALL_FOR_ABSTRACTS_478_p.htm

We are delight to inform you that the Call for contributions is already open and shall expire on 10th July 2018Extended deadline until Friday, 13th July 2018 at 12:00 a.m.

Please feel free to circulate this information among your colleagues.

Do not hesitate to contact us for any doubt or question.

We are looking for meeting you in Barcelona!

Best regards,


Andrea, Juan Carlos, Silvia, Victor, Albert, Luis and Sergi
