“Crossing Boundaries across Disciplines and Scales”
MEDECOS is an international conference organized by ISOMED, the International Society of Mediterranean Ecology, which aims to meet the scientific community interested in Mediterranean-type ecosystems. The origins of MEDECOS date back to March 1971, when an international group of scientists convened in Valdivia, Chile, to discuss their work on Mediterranean-climate ecosystems. MEDECOS has been hosted every 3-4 years in different locations of the five Mediterranean areas of the world (Mediterranean Basin, SW Australia, S California, Central Chile and the Cape Region in South Africa). In 2014, MEDECOS returns to Chile to celebrate four decades of advances in research concerning to MTEs.
