The 5th International Conference “Ecosystem dynamics in the Holocene” is an international scientific meeting, which is held every 3 years in Russia since 2004. The conference will be held in Moscow and will be dedicated to the 100th anniversary of L.G. Dinesman, famous Russian biologist and palaeoecologist. The scientific program of the Conference will be focused on the long-term studies of ecosystem dynamics, climate changes and human activity in different geographical regions during the Holocene (the last 11700 years) as well as on new methods and approaches for reconstructions of the past environmental changes. The expertise of the modern state of ecosystems and projection of their future changes is quite impossible without good understanding of the past environment and climate dynamics and ecosystem functioning including its adaptation to human impact. We invite experts from different scientific areas to introduce new results of the experimental and theoretical studies that are based on detailed palaeoecological information (pollen, macrofossil, diatoms, testate amoebae etc); paleolimnic and paleohydrological materials, radiocarbon dates, stable isotope data and the evidence about beginning of human activities. New data and results obtained from archaeological sites and presentations that can comprise the results of environmental and archeological studies are very welcome.

    The program of the conference includes plenary and 7 thematic sessions focused on:
  • Holocene landscape and climate changes.
  • Natural and anthropogenic factors in the Holocene ecosystem dynamics.
  • Environment condition and human occupation in the Holocene.
  • Ecological modelling and forecasting.
  • Methods of ecosystem studies.
  • Species extinction in the Holocene

All program of each session includes both oral and poster presentations
Conference venue The conference will be held in the Institute of Geography RAS
