Ultramafic Ecosystems: Proceedings of the 8th International Conference on Serpentine Ecology (Part 2)
Australian Journal of Botany Special Issue, Volume 63, Number 3 & 4
Covers papers presented at the 8th ICSE held in Asia focusing on the broad ecological themes.
Since 1991, researchers from approximately 45 countries have participated in eight International Conferences on Serpentine Ecology (ICSE). The ICSE conferences are coordinated by the International Serpentine Ecology Society (ISES), a formal research society whose members study geological, pedological, biological, and applied aspects of ultramafic (serpentine) ecosystems worldwide. These conferences offered an international forum to discuss and synthesise multidisciplinary research, and have provided opportunities for scientists in distinct fields and from different regions of the world to conduct collaborative and interdisciplinary research. The 8th ICSE was hosted by Sabah Parks in Malaysia, on the island of Borneo, and attracted the largest delegation to date, 174 participants from 31 countries. This was the first time an ISCE was held in Asia, the region that hosts some of the world’s most biodiverse ultramafic ecosystems. The presentations at the 8th ICSE provided a cross-section of the current status of research in all aspects of ultramafic-biota relations. Part 1 (Issues 1 &2) of the Special Issues includes papers that primarily deal with a single species, whereas Part 2 (Issues 3 & 4) contains papers with more broad ecological themes. + Full description
