5th « Ecology & Behaviour » Meeting

Monday 6 – Friday 10 April 2009, Lyon (France).

The “Ecology & Behaviour” Meeting is an international meeting with the
main purpose of promoting postgraduate research and interactions between
young researchers in Behavioural Ecology. One specificity of this
meeting, which is organized by the SERL PhD students association, is
that it is free for all participants: you only have to pay for your trip
to Lyon.

This year, the “Ecology & Behaviour” Meeting consists of four days of
conferences divided into six themes:
      * Sexual Selection
      * Foraging
      * Parasitism and predation
      * Habitat selection and dispersal
      * Collective behaviour
      * Applied Behavioural ecology

Each session will be introduced by two invited professors specialized in
this field of research, followed by 8-10 postgraduate student research
presentations and discussions. In addition, poster sessions and three
“theme evenings” designed for a broad public are planned.

The number of participants will be limited to 100 postgraduate students.

Participants are expected to give a 10-minute talk. In order to register
please submit the abstract of your talk (or poster) (300 words maximum)
on the website: http://serl2009. univ-lyon1. fr (see the website for
supplementary information) .
Registration and submission of abstracts are opened until March 2nd.

Biodiversity Hotspots – Evolution and Conservation

One of the key objectives of nature conservation is the protection of biodiversity hotspots – centres of high numbers of ecosystems, species and/or genes. The current diversity patterns are strongly influenced by historic effects like climatic fluctuations. Areas with exceptional biodiversity have mostly been less affected by these fluctuations due to relative climatic constancy or geomorphological diversity. Such hotspots of biodiversity often evolved through long-term isolation in ecologically diverse regions producing distinct genetic groups or even new taxa, which often represent local endemics.

This meeting focuses on the developement and status of areas with particularly high diversity with most of them not being adequately protected. This situation is aggravating due to increasing human land use and climate change.

We provide a platform for scientists and stakeholders to discuss the development of biodiversity hotspots and strategies to protect these areas.

Reduced fees will apply to students and to scientist from new member states of the European Union. The conference fee will be according to the time of payment; the deadline for early booking is the 1st December 2008.

Időpont: március 26 – 28, 2009

Third Student Workshop of the European Student Chapter of the Wildlife Disease Association


The Third EWDA Student Workshop will be held at the conference centre of the Merieux Foundation, Les Pensieres, in Veyrier-du-Lac, France, from March 19th to March 22nd, 2009! The central theme of the workshop is Infectious Diseases at the Wildlife / Domestic Animal / Human Interface.

The EWDA Student Workshop aims at giving advanced undergraduate and graduate students the opportunity to meet and share the experience of internationally renowned scientists working at the crossroads of human and animal health. During three days, students and professionals will share their knowledge through keynote lectures and outstanding oral communications, panel discussions, special sessions and student presentations. Special guests will be invited to enlarge the scope of the discussions, and will include representatives of leading Institutions supporting health initiatives, experts from pharmaceutical companies, European and governmental representatives, journalists, and more!

The objective of the workshop is to enhance the scientific skills of participating students, from study design to publication to media release, and offer a comprehensive view of the outlets and duties of the next generation of health scientists, under the One World – One Health framework.

The Third EWDA Student Workshop is open to graduate students (MSc and PhD) working on disease ecology in its broadest sense (from pathogenesis to epidemiology to control and management), and undergraduate students in their final years considering pursuing disease ecology research. Medical, veterinarian, biological, ecological, mathematical and other backgrounds are all welcome! Selection of 40 participating students will be based on a CV, motivation letter, reference letter from a Professor, a poster abstract if MSc or PhD student and grade transcripts of latest semester if undergraduate. Willing undergraduates are welcome to send a poster abstract. Experience in disease ecology research is highly recommended. The application deadline is January 15th, 2009!
