This workshop aims at providing a forum to to discuss recent advancements in the understanding of the interaction between climate, environment and populations of many model species belonging to upper vertebrates.

We plan to develop an interdisciplinary approach inviting specialists not only from the behavioural ecology but also from plant ecology and climatology communities, in an evolutionary biology perspective.
