Call for Abstracts
We are currently inviting abstract submissions for the 2021 River Symposium that contextualize scientific research in terms of how local freshwater systems are affected by global challenges, both the pressures and responses. We welcome all scientific work related to river and freshwater ecosystems. In addition to selecting the most appropriate session for your research, please also indicate which threats are considered appropriate: #climate change; #pollution; #invasive species; #exploitation; #land use change. We welcome submissions for any one of our four sessions:
Living Waters: Environmental change
Identifying and assessing challenges related to water quality, water levels and flow, river runoff, productivity, emerging contaminants and eDNA.
Footprints: Freshwater Habitats
Landscapes and land use ecological impacts on ecosystems including wetlands, restoration, sediments, habitats: mapping & change.
All things small: Food web ecology and resilience
Lower food web, including phytoplankton, zooplankton, community composition, food chain dynamics and key species.
All things great: Fish biology and biodiversity
