The Estacion Biologica de Doņana (Sevilla, Spain) invites applications for
its third international course on climate change entitled 'Ecological
Consequences of Climate Change: Integrating Research Approaches' taking
place from 24 September to 5 October 2012 in the heart of Doņana National
Park. The course is open to students at the early postdoc, PhD and
Master/advanced Diploma levels who are involved in global-change research.
Its aim is to provide a synthetic overview upon different research
perspectives ranging from paleoecology to population genetics,
ecophysiology and bioclimatic modeling. The course will include lectures
and practical exercises provided by an international panel of high-profile
researchers, as well as field trips within the National Park.
