Society of Wetland Scientists International Annual Meeting


  • Providence, RI

Changing Climate, Changing Wetlands: Climate Impacts to Wetlands and the Role of Wetlands in Climate Change Adaptation and Carbon Mitigation

 Meeting Website: http://swsannualmeeting.org/

The Society of Wetland Scientists (SWS) is pleased to announce that the 2015 International Annual Meeting will be held in Providence, Rhode Island, U.S.A. This ground-breaking conference will examine the role that wetlands play in the global carbon cycle, how wetlands provide climate adaptation services, and how they are being impacted by our changing climate. Wetlands provide a variety of ecosystem services that protect communities from the impacts of climate change, and yet they are particularly vulnerable to some of the climate changes that are occurring. Over the course of five days, leading researchers from around the world will present findings that represent our most current understanding of how wetlands function in the context of climate change. A number of field trips, both coastal and inland, will be offered in addition to a variety of workshops. Abstract submissions are now being accepted through Feb. 11, 2015. Visit the SWS meeting website for more information and to register.
