ProgramThe emphasis of this Seventh international ESP conference will be on the use of the ecosystem services concept at the local level, focussing on Latin America with a special emphasis on Costa Rica. Scientists representing several EU-funded projects will present their results on Community Based Ecosystem Management: CiVi.Net, COBRA, EcoADAPT, CombioServe and COMETLA.
In line with the previous ESP conferences, the program consists of a mix of plenary sessions (keynotes, panels), workshops, open topic sessions, special sessions and field trips.
See the Program Booklet for more details. A hardcopy of the program booklet with all the information about the conference will be distributed upon registration.
Book of AbstractsThe Book of Abstracts is now available. The Book of Abstracts consists of separate PDF files per session. Each 'book' contains a detailed session description, an overview of the presenters, the abstracts and, when available, a timetable of the presentations.
