Session Announcement and Call for Papers:
Arctic Change and Implications for Terrestrial Ecosystem Services
Arctic Science Summit Week 2011
27 March - 1 April 2011
We want to make you aware of the last call for abstracts to the session "Arctic Change and Implications for Terrestrial Ecosystem Services". The session will be convened at the 12th Arctic Science Summit Week, 27 March - 1 April 2011 in Seoul, Korea; entitled "The Arctic: New frontier for global sciences" (http://www.assw2011.org/).
This session welcomes contributions on all aspects of Arctic terrestrial population, community, ecosystem processes and biodiversity. We especially welcome interdisciplinary papers that provide new information about approaches for valuing ecosystem services by describing and assessing links between the structures and functions of natural systems and the benefits (i.e., goods and services) derived by humanity. What Arctic terrestrial ecosystem services can be defined, how can they be measured, and is the knowledge of these services sufficient to support an assessment of their value to society? What kinds of research or syntheses would most rapidly advance our ability to recognize, measure, and value ecosystem services of Arctic terrestrial environments? What are the anticipated effects of climate change and population growth on ecosystem services and societies in the Arctic?
Abstract submission deadline: Saturday, 15th of January 2011.
