We are pleased to announce that the is being organized and will be hosted by the University of Évora on 22-23 November 2018 in Évora, Portugal.
This meeting is promoted by members of Agroeco (Agroecology Research Network), a recently created Work Group of the AEET focused on the study of the ecology of terrestrial agricultural systems. Land conversion for agricultural purposes and the intensification of farming practices are major threats to ecosystems worldwide and Agroecology provides a scientifically rigorous basis for sustainable croplands by taking into consideration all those ecological aspects that need to be addressed for the conservation management of production landscapes. Is thus aimed at guiding research and decision-making for food production and security, while committed with the conservation of biodiversity and its associated ecosystem functions and services, essential for sustainable agriculture.
In response to the burgeoning interest showed by researchers on agroecological studies in Spain and Portugal, the University of Évora is organizing the 1st Iberian Meeting on Agroecological Research (ibagreco) to be held from 22nd to 23rd of November 2018 in Évora, Portugal. agreco is intended to bring together research aimed to understand the ecological basis for sustainable agriculture and is conceived to offer researchers a framework to share their cutting-edge research on Iberian agroecosystems. However, research from all over the world will be also very welcome. Join us!
