Programmatic and Special Session Topics

The GEER 2010 technical program will focus on ramifications of change in the Greater Everglades ecosystem as caused by Climate and Sea Level Rise, Invasive Species, Human Influence, Continued Degradation and Ongoing Restoration, Natural Hazards (hurricanes, tropical storms, floods, and drought), Nutrients and Contaminants, Hydrologic Effects and Landscape Dynamics.

To address these ramifications of change, presentations will be organized into a diverse group of technical sessions on:

  • Adaptive Management and Restoration Planning in Biscayne Bay

  • Biogeochemistry, Contaminants & Water Quality

  • Carbon Dynamics

  • Climate Change, Sea Level Rise & Natural Hazards (hurricanes, freezes, droughts, floods)

  • Ecosystem Services

  • Everglades Science-Decision Making

  • Flow Effects

  • Human Influence Change

  • Invasive Species

  • Lake Okeechobee Restoration

  • Loxahatchee’s Living Laboratory

  • Modeling and Monitoring Biscayne Bay and Southern Coastal Systems

  • National Coalition for Ecosystem Restoration

  • New Scientific Knowledge for Everglades Restoration

  • Paleoecology & Historical Hydrology

  • Picayune Strand Restoration

  • Program Management and Project Implementation

  • Remote Sensing

  • Restoration Planning in Biscayne Bay

  • River of Grass

  • Sampling Tools and Technologies

  • Sea Level Rise and Species Response

  • System-wide Science

  • Taylor Slough Basin

  • Tree Islands

  • Unifying Concepts for Interdisciplinary Planning

NOTE: Abstract submissions are not limited to these areas. We want to capture all emerging topics and new ideas critical to Everglades restoration. If you were asked to submit an abstract for presentation in a particular session, be sure to identify that specific session when submitting your abstract online.
