Show description

In recent years, classical biological sciences have progressed significantly, mainly through the introduction and validation of new methods of analysis (statistical, morphometric, molecular, etc.). Considerable successes have been achieved through the modern interdisciplinary approach in the analysis of phylogeny and the origin of flora and fauna. The increased interest in them is also dictated by their implications to nature conservation. At the same time, the need for correct cataloging, studying, management and conservation of global biodiversity is recognized.

The upcoming Congress is a continuation of the already traditional meetings for scientific debate and exchange of new scientific knowledge between researchers, students, lecturers, members of scientific and environmental organizations from Europe (Italy, Malta, Switzerland, France, Bulgaria, Russia and others) and Africa (Tunisia, Algeria, Morocco and others). It facilitates and deepens the interactions between people from the above groups working in a very dynamic environment fostering innovation that allows their research to always be on a high level and with direct benefits to society.

The Congress focuses on the following areas: plant and animal biodiversity; ecology of terrestrial, freshwater and marine ecosystems; faunistics, floristics, taxonomy and systematics; protected areas and their management; invasive alien species and their impact on local biodiversity; engaging civil society in sustainable use of natural resources.

The goals of the congress are to communicate and exchange ideas and knowledge to ensure a higher level of research, enhance the qualifications and efficiency of career development of the scientists in Biology, and enhance the international cooperation already achieved in previous meetings. The official languages of the congress are English and French.
