Welcome to the 30th SCAPE meeting!

SCAPE logoThe meting will be held October 13-16, 2016, at Abisko, northernmost Sweden. The meeting begins on Thursday evening. Abisko can be reached by train or car from Kiruna, alternatively by train all the way from Stockholm. Kiruna can also be reached by airplane from Stockholm. The price for food and accommodation (standard lodging) will be 3600 SEK (ca 400 Euro) to be paid not later than 31 August.

We intend to organize a traditional Scape-meeting and allocate most of the time to short presentations (12 min + 3 min discussion) by PhD-students and others.

We are glad to announce this year’s three invited speakers

Bruce Anderson, University of Stellenbosch (www.biointeractionslab.com/prof.-bruce-anderson.html)
Sharon Strauss, University of California at Davis (sharonstrauss.wordpress.com)
James Thomson, University of Toronto (labs.eeb.utoronto.ca/thomson)

To celebrate SCAPE 2016, the Nordic Society Oikos has prepared a Virtual Issue featuring a selection of articles published in its journals, Nordic Journal of Botany, OIKOS, Ecography and Journal of Avian Biology. Each article will be free to access for one month after the meeting has ended. Nordic Journal of Botany will be present at the Scape meeting.

Looking forward to seeing you!
