6th NEOBIOTA Conference - Copenhagen, Denmark, 14-17 September 2010
There is overwhelming scientific evidence and rising public awareness that humans have started to modify the Earth at an unprecedented scale. Global change is a complex set of interacting processes with climate, land use and transport as the probably most significant drivers. Biological invasions are an important component of global change, and invasive organisms have been described both as factor and symptom of local shifts in habitat conditions. NEOBIOTA 2010 is the first conference focusing on biological invasions in a changing environment.
We seek a wide perspective including contributions from science and management; there will be no bias to particular species groups, habitats or regions. The conference invites a number of outstanding experts dealing with different aspects of invasions in a changing environment, and we welcome an international audience with interest in this field.
Specialist sessions will allow for in-depth discussions on contrasting methodological approaches to biological invasions, including macroecological analyses, population models and molecular methods. There will also be room for applied topics including impact, risk assessment, socio-economic aspects and control of invasive species in a changing world.
