SPECIES ON THE MOVE 2019
International Conference Series

SOTM was hosted by Rhodes University, South Africa, and UTAS, Australia

On behalf of the 2019 Conference Convenors and Conference Organising Committee, it was our great pleasure to welcome each and every one of you to Kruger National Park for what was a rewarding, diverse and engaging Species on the Move International Conference Series held from Monday 22nd to Friday 26th July 2019.

The conference brought together scientists and natural resource managers working in the disciplines of global change, biogeography and evolution, and relevant in contexts of natural resource management, biodiversity management and conservation, and theoretical ecology.

We thank all those who made the long journey to join us in Kruger National Park, South Africa and hope you had an enjoyable and educational experience, we look forward to seeing you at the next Species on the Move Conference in the United States of America.

Species on the Move

An International Conference Series

The conference brings together scientists and natural resource managers working in the disciplines of global change, biogeography and evolution, and relevant in contexts of natural resource management, biodiversity management and conservation, and theoretical ecology.


Species responses to climate change is a rapidly evolving research field, however, much of our progress is being made in independent research areas: e.g. understanding the process vs responding to the implications, terrestrial vs marine ecosystems, global meta-analyses vs in depth species-specific approaches. This interdisciplinary conference develops connections between these parallel streams, and across temporal and spatial scales.
