The Institute of Plant and Animal Ecology UB RAS invites you to participate in the International Scientific Symposium Ecology and evolution: New challenges dedicated to the celebration of 100th anniversary of RAS Academician S.S. Shwartz, which will be held in Ekaterinburg, Russia, April 1–5, 2019.

The Symposium is aimed at facilitating discussions among its participants around issues associated with the organization, functioning, dynamics and sustainability of living systems at superorganismic levels (populations, communities, ecosystems) in diverse environmental gradients.

Stanislav Semenovich Shwartz was a prominent Russian ecologist whose contribution to the field of population and evolutionary ecology is hard to overestimate. S.S. Shwartz is deservedly regarded as the founder of the Ural ecological scientific school. From 1955 to 1976 he headed the Institute of Plant and Animal Ecology. One of his remarkable achievements was the Russian Journal of Ecology, which he established in 1970. S.S. Shwartz was awarded a number of state civilian decorations and awards, including A.N. Severtsov’ Award.
