ICCB-ECCB 2015: 27th International Congress for Conservation Biology & 4th European Congress for Conservation Biology

On August, members from the Biodiversity and Animal Conservation lab, Biodiversity and Landscape ecology lab and the InForest Research Unit of CTFC attended and contributed to the 27th International Congress for Conservation Biology and 4th European Congress for Conservation Biology (ICCB-ECCB).
The 27th International Congress for Conservation Biology and 4th European Congress for Conservation Biology (ICCB-ECCB), hosted by the Society for Conservation Biology in the beautiful city of Montpellier (France), was a huge forum wherein more than 2,000 participants from 98 countries met for addressing conservation challenges and for presenting new research and developments in conservation science. The meeting theme, Mission Biodiversity: Choosing new paths for conservation, reflects the need to keep up with and anticipate changes for better conservation science and practice. Conservation biology has matured into a highly interdisciplinary field, integrating the social, economic and ecological sciences and increasingly focusing on the impacts of conservation interventions on wildlife and on human well-being. This Congress highlighted the relevance of these disciplinary synergies with sessions such as conservation sociology, citizen science, and conservation planning and remote sensing, among others.
The InForest Research Unit (CEMFOR-CTFC) contributed to this amazing international event with its research in several symposiums, oral and poster presentations (the most of them available at the Abstract Book of the ICCB-ECCB 2015):
  1. OVERVIEW OF BIODIVERSITY CONSERVATION RESEARCH IN MEDITERRANEAN- TYPE ECOSYSTEMS OF THE WORLD
  2. BARRIERS TO BIODIVERSITY IN FLUVIAL ECOSYSTEMS RELYING ON HISTORICAL ECOLOGY TO PLAN THE RECOVERY OF THE EUROPEAN EEL
  3. THE POTENTIAL OF NATURA 2000 NETWORK HAS NOT BEEN FULLY REALIZED DUE TO LACK OF INTERNATIONAL COORDINATION
  4. REWILDING AS A LAND-USE OPTION FOR BIODIVERSITY CONSERVATION IN A CONTEXT OF LAND ABANDONMENT AND FIRE DISTURBANCES: WINNERS AND LOSERS
