ECOSUD 2015 is the 10th International Conference in the well established series on Ecosystems and Sustainable Development. The meetings provide a unique forum for the presentation and discussion of recent work on different aspects of ecosystems and sustainable development, including physical sciences and modelling.
This successful series first started in Peniscola, Spain (1997) and continued in Lemnos, Greece (1999); Alicante, Spain (2001); Siena, Italy (2003); Cadiz, Spain (2005); Coimbra, Portugal (2007); Chianciano Terme, Italy (2009), Alicante, Spain (2011) and Bucharest, Romania (2013).
The aim of the Conference is to encourage and facilitate interdisciplinary communication between scientists, engineers, economists and professionals working in ecological systems and sustainable development. Emphasis will be given to those areas that will most benefit from the application of scientific methods for sustainable development, including the conservation of natural systems around the world. The conference objectives have evolved over the years, seeking to integrate thermodynamics, ecology and economics into “ecodynamics”.
The papers presented at this conference as well as all preceding meetings in the series have been permanently archived in the Wessex Institute eLibrary as WIT Transactions (see http://library.witpress.com) where they are easily accessible to the scientific community. They contribute a whole record of the state of the art in ecosystems and sustainable development fields. The conference books are produced in paper and digital format and widely distributed throughout the world.
