The Estación Biológica de Doñana (Sevilla, Spain) invites applications for its third international course on climate change entitled ‘Ecological Consequences of Climate Change: Integrating Research Approaches’ taking place from 24 September to 5 October 2012 in the heart of Doñana National Park. The course is open to students at the early postdoc, PhD and Master/advanced Diploma levels who are involved in global-change research. Its aim is to provide a synthetic overview upon different research perspectives ranging from paleoecology to population genetics, ecophysiology and bioclimatic modeling. The course will include lectures and practical exercises provided by an international panel of high-profile researchers, as well as field trips within the National Park.
