Royal Geographical Society (with Institute of British Geographers)
Conference and British Ecological Society Conference, 4-7 January
1999, Leicester University, UK.

Joint Session (co-sponsored by BRG and BES):

'Extending the Ecological Timescale'.

Wednesday, 6th January, 1999.

Keynote address:
 'The past as the key to the present?'
(Dr. Keith Bennett, University of Cambridge).

An appreciation of the importance of temporal scale is crucial to
resolving many ecological problems.  However, potential scientific
benefits of closer integration between palaeoecology and ecology have
not been fully exploited.  The aim of this symposium is to provide a
forum for exchange of ideas between palaeoecologists and ecologists
and to explore avenues of closer interdisciplinary collaboration.

Papers addressing any aspect of this theme are welcomed.

Please send a title and abstract by 1st July, 1998 to:
