Title: BioSyst.EU : Federation of European Biological Systematic Societies
Title abbreviated: BioSyst.EU
Creator: Sattmann, Helmut
Abstract: BioSyst.EU represents European scientists dealing with topics of systematic biology. It considers itself as a collaborative counterpart to the Consortium of European Taxonomic Facilities (CETAF) where European Natural History Institutions have joined, whereas in BioSyst.EU individual scientists are to be represented via their national or regional societies. BioSyst.EU aims to provide a European platform to: a) hold joint meetings on a regular basis; b) promote research, teaching, and training in all areas of systematic biology, including phylogenetic, taxonomic, and biodiversity research; c) encourage collaboration and interchange among researchers, both individually and through their respective societies and institutions; d) coordinate national and international efforts without infringing on the autonomy of the member societies; e) encourage formation of additional national systematic societies, while continuing to represent systematists in countries still lacking formal societies and f) increase the profile and funding of systematic biology in the European parliament.
