The useR! Conference 2015

Tuesday 30 June 2015 - Friday 03 July 2015, Aalborg, Denmark

52nd annual meeting of the Association for Tropical Biology and Conservation

Monday 13 July 2015 - Thursday 16 July 2015, Honolulu, Hawaii
The theme for the conference is: "Resilience of Island Systems in the Context of Climate Change: Challenges for Biological and Cultural diversity and Conservation". Conservation of tropical biota is a pressing issue and one that is accentuated in island systems around the world. Many current hypotheses and theories in mainstream ecology have been established in island systems and have been “translated” to other continental contexts. Island systems are also particularly vulnerable to factors such as climate change, invasive species, and sea level rise. Furthermore, human cultures in such environments are also vulnerable. Thus, a theme (although not the exclusive focus) on islands is merited with particular emphasis on the relationship between conservation of both biological and cultural heritage.
