*Climate change genomics workshop: vulnerability, adaptations &
This international online workshop is organised by the Climate Change
Ecology and Ecological Genetics Special Interest Groups of the British
Ecological Society. Participants will discuss methodologies, evidence and
applications of genomics to investigate climate change induced effects on
organisms. We aim to develop best practices for applying genetic/genomic
tools to assess vulnerability and study adaptations to climate change in
order to inform adaptive conservation management and promote better
integration of genomic approaches in both climate change research and
biodiversity conservation. This workshop will bring together international
experts, junior scientists and everyone in between, working across a
variety of ecological systems.
The workshop is split into morning and afternoon sessions to accommodate
participants across different time zones. Each day will focus on a
different theme and will include a combination of invited speaker talks,
talks selected from abstract submissions, followed by breakout room
discussions, and online poster sessions, with prizes for the best student
talk and poster.
*Day 1 Methods (**13 Sep 2022**):* Exploring methods to assess
vulnerability to climate change using genomic tools.
*Day 2 Evidence (14 Sep 2022): *Adaptation and resilience, including
evidence of genetic adaptations to climate and climate change and genetic
impacts of range shifts.
*Day 3 Applications (15 Sep 2022):* Approaches to monitoring
genetic/genomic responses and changes under climate change and applications
in policy and conservation management.
