Sexual selection: do we need to keep testing the alternatives? This is a two-day ASAB meeting to explore the current status of sexual selection, in terms of both theory and experiment. Thirty years have passed since Bradbury and Andersson's classic edited book, but sexual selection remains alive to alternative perspectives, theoretical challenges and novel empirical data. We invite spoken and poster presentations encompassing the widest range of current work on sexual selection. Please note that due to space constraints, poster space will be limited. ...

At present, many individual governments, financial Institutes and international donors are currently spending billions of dollars in projects around climate change and biodiversity, but with little coordination. Quite often, the emphasis is on adaptation efforts, with little emphasis on the connections between physio-ecological changes and the life cycles and metabolisms of fauna and flora, or the influence of poor governance on biodiversity. There is therefore a perceived need to not only better understand the impacts of climate change on biodiversity, but to also identify, test and implement measures aimed at managing the many risks climate change poses to fauna, flora and micro organisms. In particular, the question as to how better restore and protect ecosystems from the impact of climate change also has to be urgently addressed. It is in order to address this need that the World Symposium on Climate Change and Biodiversity (WSCCB-2018) is being organized by the International Climate Change Information Programme (ICCIP), the Research and Transfer Centre “Sustainable Development and Climate Change Management” of the Hamburg University of Applied Sciences (Germany) and Manchester Metropolitan University (UK), in collaboration with a set of organisations. The Symposium will be a truly interdisciplinary event, mobilizing scholars, social movements, practitioners and members of governmental agencies, undertaking research and/or executing projects on climate change and biodiversity across the world. ...

The meeting will consider applications of mathematical modelling to explore processes and mechanisms in various biological systems ranging from a cell to the human society. A special focus will be on the interplay between ecology and evolution across time and space. MPDEE’18 is also expected to explore similarities between modelling techniques traditionally applied in ecology and evolution and those used in other life sciences with the purpose to enhance interdisciplinary approaches and to stimulate further advances in population dynamics, ecology and evolution. The meeting will be an open forum for interaction between theoreticians and empirical biologists with the main goal of enhancing communication between the two groups to better link theories with empirical realities. ...

We look forward to welcoming you to the 14th International Seabird Group Conference in Liverpool on the 3-6th September 2018. The next International Seabird Group Conference is being organised by Jon Green and Samantha Patrick and colleagues from the University of Liverpool. The conference promises to provide an exciting showcase of the latest seabird research, located within the heart of the city of Liverpool, famous for its maritime history and cultural diversity. Keynote speakers and early career events will compliment two and a half days of talks and posters, covering all aspects of seabird research. The Seabird Group registered charity, was founded in 1966 to promote and help coordinate the study and conservation of seabirds. The group has a rich history of seabird census work, and continues to provide support to seabird research projects across the globe.

I would like to extend a warm welcome to all of you planning to attend Neobiota 2018, the 10th International Conference on Biological Invasions, which will be held in the Royal Marine Hotel in Dunlaoghaire, Co Dublin, Ireland. Dúnlaoghaire (often pronounced phonetically Dunleary) is a small town on the east coast of Ireland, about seven miles (11km) south of the capital Dublin. Its focal point is an attractive harbour and seafront, with a new iconic library and social centre. ... [Information of the supplier]
FEMS 2019 will bring together leading scientists spanning different fields of microbiology to celebrate the best of microbiology. This congress will showcase the most recent developments in microbiology to address some of the global challenges we face today, such as antimicrobial resistance, environmental pollution and the emergence of pathogenic disease. In fact, the FEMS Congresses are the only scientific meetings at European level providing a unique forum for interdisciplinary dialogue and discussion between all microbiological specialties ranging from basic research to applied and across all sectors – academic, policy, business, educational, and communications. The Congress aims to inspire scientists by providing a unique forum for interdisciplinary collaboration and discussion at both the European and international level. ... [Information of the supplier]
