Title: EXPLORING DIFFERENT FACETS OF MACROECOLOGICAL RESEARCH IN AN AGE OF BIG DATA: TRENDS, GAPS AND OPPORTUNITIES

The traditional goal of macroecology is explain biodiversity patterns at large temporal and spatial scales. However, the profound impacts of anthropogenic global changes promoted a shift towards a more applied discipline. In this talk, Fernanda Alves-Martins has explored the challenges and opportunities that macroecology face in view of the massive volume of environmental and biodiversity databases that are freely available. She has shared the results of studies focused on several biological groups, including insects, birds and plants, conducted in Neotropics, North America and Africa. The talk has highlighted methods and approaches to integrate and data from different sources and how they can be used to solve theoretical and applied questions in macroecological research.
