63rd Annual Fall Symposium
Ecological Restoration in a Changing Biosphere

Missouri Botanical Garden
St. Louis, Missouri
SAVE THE DATE: October 7-8, 2016

The 2016 Symposium will present contemporary perspectives on the science, technology, and human dimensions of the rapidly expanding field of ecological restoration. In the post-COP21 world, when all three UN Conventions call for scaling up and mainstreaming of ecological restoration, it is clear that restoration programs will affect hundreds of millions of hectares – and as many people – over the coming decades. At the same time, we find ourselves in an era of unprecedented change where climate, ecological baselines, and future land-use changes are highly uncertain. This symposium will address key questions including: How are restoration ecologists, practitioners, and policy makers addressing these challenges? And what do these challenges mean for countries striving to meet ambitious restoration targets? In addition to featuring an outstanding slate of speakers, the Symposium will be moderated by Paddy Woodworth, author of “Our Once and Future Planet: Restoring the World in the Climate Change Century”.
