Species on the Move 2023

Everglades National Park, Florida, USA

Welcome to Species on the Move 2023

International Conference Series

This is the third iteration of the successful SOTM series. 2016 was held in Tasmania and 2019 in South Africa. SOTM 2023 is being hosted by the University of Florida in Everglades National Park, Florida, USA

On behalf of the 2023 Conference Convenors and Conference Committee, it is our great pleasure to welcome each and every one of you to Everglades National Park for what will be a rewarding, diverse and engaging Species on the Move International Conference Series held from May 15-19, 2023.

The conference brings together scientists and natural resource managers working in the disciplines of global change, biogeography and evolution, and relevant in contexts of natural resource management, biodiversity management and conservation, and theoretical ecology.

Species response to climate change is a rapidly evolving research field, however, much of our progress is being made in independent research areas: e.g. understanding the process vs responding to the implications, terrestrial vs marine ecosystems, global meta-analyses vs in depth species-specific approaches. This interdisciplinary conference develops connections between these parallel themes, and across temporal and spatial scales.

We hope you will make the journey to join us in the Everglades.

Dr. Brett Scheffers and Ms. Carolyn Cox
