Dear colleagues,

we are organising a session at the next EGU General Assembly (3-8th May
2020, Vienna, Austria) entitled "*Biotic patterns during climate change:
geohistorical records*", and we invite all of you working on the response
of past ecosystems to climate change to submit an abstract for it!

We know that it is an expensive conference, but there are at least to very
good reasons to participate:
1. The EGU General Assembly is the biggest international meeting for
geoscientists in Europe, attracting also researchers from other
disciplines, such as biologists, conservation ecologists and climate
modelleres. It represents a great opportunity to share our research across
disciplines and paleontologists cannot miss it.
2. It is also a venue where European palentologists meet on a regular basis
to share knowledge, methods and perspectives. We encourage you to join it:
the wider the community, the greater our awareness and impact of our

Here a brief the description of the session:
"Forced by climate change across critical thresholds, regional and global
ecosystems may shift abruptly and irreversibly from one state to another.
The fossil record shows that Earth’s biosphere has undergone state shifts
in the past, over various timescales, and therefore can do so in the
future. The session hosts contributions of conservation paleobiology and
stratigraphic paleobiology that make use of geohistorical records to
understand and compare past and present ecosystem response to climate

*Deadline for receipt of abstracts: 15th January 2020*

See you in Vienna!
