Understanding how living organisms respond and adapt to environmental changes remains a major and urgent scientific challenge. CEES combines a broad spectrum of disciplines – such as population biology, statistical and mathematical modelling, and genomics – to foster the concept of ecology as a driving force of evolution via selective processes, with a corresponding influence of evolutionary changes on ecology.
