MEDECOS is an international conference organised under the auspices of ISOMED, the International Society of Mediterranean Ecology. ISOMED promotes research and education to advance the understanding and conservation of the world’s five regions with Mediterranean-type climate regimes, all of which are recognized as globally significant hotspots of biodiversity.
The MEDECOS conferences focus on the ecology and evolution of Mediterranean ecosystems and their species. By uniting scientists and students whose research centres on Mediterranean-climate ecosystems, participants gain insights into the similarities and differences in how these ecosystems function, change and evolve. The FYNBOS FORUM is a local affiliation of researchers, planners, managers, landowners and other stakeholders that meets annually to discuss management issues and research results and to formulate priorities for future research and conservation management actions required to ensure the conservation and sustainability of Fynbos ecosystems.
In 2022, the FYNBOS FORUM will combine with MEDECOS to host MEDECOS 2022/ FYNBOS FORUM 2022.
