This will be the third in a series of international conferences focussed on invasive alien species (IAS) on islands, their impact and management. It follows those held in Auckland, New Zealand, in 2001 and 2010*. The Dundee conference will therefore be the first such meeting for seven years, and the first to be held in the northern hemisphere. In the context of this meeting, the definition of ‘island’ is broader than just a piece of land surrounded by water. Much the same problems and solutions apply to land surrounded by predator-proof fences, and to unfenced but isolated patches of habitat such as coral reefs. This conference, hosted by the University of Dundee and the South Georgia Heritage Trust, will be a long-overdue gathering of the island invasives clan. It will build on the great success of the Auckland meetings, allow greater participation of people from Europe and North America, and bring together experts and those thirsty for knowledge in diverse fields covering the invaders and invaded. ...

2. BES Symposium 2017: The Macroecology of Alien Species: Patterns, Drivers and Consequences of Global Biotic Exchange
Charles Elton recognized that the breakdown of biogeographic barriers as a consequence of transport, trade and economic globalisation will lead to unprecedented movements of biotas among continents and oceans, resulting in increased rates of invasion by alien species. For well-studied taxa such as plants and vertebrates, we are only just beginning to understand the extent to which species are becoming distributed globally, and how much biotas are becoming similar. However, a global picture including less-studied taxonomic groups such as invertebrates and pathogens is lacking. This timely, 2-day symposium in the historic and beautiful city of Durham will bring together invasion ecologists and macroecologists, working on many different taxonomic groups, to build a global synthesis of alien species distribution and richness. The symposium will explore the major drivers behind the mixing of the world’s biotas, and the consequences for conservation of biodiversity. ... [Information of the supplier]
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.
