The 2018 IAVS 61st Annual Symposium will be held July 22-27, 2018 at Montana State University in Bozeman, Montana, USA. Bozeman is located in the Greater Yellowstone Area close to the Crown of the Continent of the northern Rocky Mountains. The timing of the symposium is optimal to see the subalpine and alpine flora in flower and will also allow participants to attend the 103rd Annual Conference of the Ecological Society of America, which is August 5-10 in New Orleans, Louisiana if they wish. Given the magnificent natural setting, we chose the primary theme of the meeting as "Natural Ecosystems as Benchmarks for Vegetation Science". ... [Information of the supplier]
In 2018, International Society for Plant Pathology will celebrate its 50th anniversary and will hold its 11th Congress in historic Boston, Massachusetts, United States of America July 29 through August 3. ISPP promotes the worldwide development of plant pathology, and the dissemination of knowledge about plant diseases and plant health management. The society sponsors the International Congress of Plant Pathology (ICPP) at regular intervals. ISPP and APS look forward to welcoming you to Boston in 2018 and celebrating its 50th anniversary! Boston is the perfect city to host ISPP and the 11th ICPP, as America’s beginnings sprouted from this city! The history of plant pathology in the U.S., as throughout the world, is the story of agriculture. Cultivation in the Americas started with over 60 million Native Americans making use of the bounty of the land and practicing agriculture and farming for at least 10,000 years. America’s agricultural story is the world’s story as well – it’s a story of immigrants traveling to new lands, incorporating new people, new crops, and new diseases. It’s the story of people coming together to discover solutions to society’s most pressing issues. The ICPP 2018, organized by the American Phytopathological Society (APS), will be a global summit of leading scientists focused on the sustainable production and protection of plants. The theme of the meeting will be, “Plant Health in A Global Economy,” and presentations will cover the full range of research topics from genomics to epidemiology, which affect plant health at a local and global scale. ...

The Animal Behavior Society (ABS) is a non-partisan, non-profit, 501(3)(c) professional organization dedicated to promoting and advancing the scientific study of animal behavior. Members of ABS study behavior across all levels of biological organization, under natural and controlled conditions, and using descriptive and experimental approaches. Together with its sister organization, the Association for the Study of Animal Behaviour (ASAB), ABS edits the field’s flagship scientific journal, Animal Behaviour. ABS also sponsors annual research conferences, educational programs, outreach activities, student research grant competitions, and a professional certification program. ...

Extreme events, such as heat waves, droughts, floods, fires and storms, are exacerbated by human activities and challenge populations, communities and ecosystems, as well as our human health and living conditions. The ability of ecosystems to respond to these challenges depends on the integrity of resilience mechanisms that have been severely undermined by land-use practices that increase effects of extreme conditions. Past civilizations, such as the Maya and Mesopotamians, apparently exacerbated the droughts (that caused their demise) through deforestation and agricultural practices similar to our own. Clearly, the sustainability of ecosystem services and human well-being depends on ecosystem resilience to extreme events. ... [Information of the supplier]
