The 27th International Congress for Conservation Biology (and also the 4th European Congress for Conservation Biology) is taking place in Montpellier in the South of France August 2–6, 2015. This year’s title is “Mission Biodiversity — Choosing new paths for conservation” — that sounds inspiring!
Therefore, I am more than happy to be an invited speaker in a Symposium on Biodiversity management and development: challenges, opportunities and new directions. This symposium will focus on impact mitigation, no net loss, the mitigation hierarchy and biodiversity offsets and I’ll share some insights from the German practice with impact mitigation. I’ll be delighted to meet many great people there!
If you want to register for this exciting event (more than thousand scientists from all over the world, with presentations, posters, workshops and excursions) be fast — the early bird deadline is extended to May 8, 2015.
About the Conference
The Society for Conservation Biology (SCB) is proud to team up for the first time with Agropolis international and the French Foundation for Research on Biodiversity (FRB) to host the 27th International Congress for Conservation Biology (ICCB) and the 4th European Congress for Conservation Biology (ECCB) to be held on August 2–6, 2015 in Montpellier, France.
The joint meeting brings together our international community of conservation professionals to address conservation challenges and present new findings, initiatives, methods, tools and opportunities in conservation science and practice. It’s also a marvelous opportunity to welcome scientists and conservationists from around the world to Europe. Scientists, students, managers, decision-makers, writers, and other conservation professionals across the globe are invited to participate in this event.
The City of Montpellier is located in south of France between the Mediterranean Sea and several national parks and is a hotspot of European biodiversity, at the heart of the scientific community of Montpellier and Languedoc-Roussillon region.
From Afghanistan to Zimbabwe and everywhere in between, authors from 109 countries submitted abstracts to present their research at ICCB-ECCB 2015. Click here Find other impressive numbers from ICCB-ECCB and download the Programme-at-a-Glance (subject to change).
