Scientific Committee/Keynote Speaker
Ursula Scharler is currently Associate Professor at the School of Life Sciences, University of KwaZulu-Natal (UKZN), in Durban, South Africa. Her main fields of research are systems analysis and ecosystem modelling of estuarine, marine and socio-economic systems. Her current projects include systems analysis on estuarine and marine ecosystems with respect to variability, resilience, extinctions and hierarchical scales. The ecological research concentrates on South African estuaries and nearshore marine environments, and how global change influences their variability, and functioning. She enjoys many collaborations in South Africa, Europe, the USA, Australia, India and China.
