Ethology Investigates: Online Conference on Invasive Species

Mark Hauber along with Phill Cassey, Naomi Langmore and Bard Stokke are hosting the second ethology Investigates online conference.

Join us from April 15 to 17, 2013 for talks, presented papers and posters on the behavior and impact of invasive species as they interact with native biota.

Animals today are regularly confronted with novel situations – destruction of habitat, introduction of new predators or new food sources. Studies on invasive species can yield critical insights into evolutionary theory, behavioral ecology, community ecology, developmental physiology, and conservation practice. This three-day event will showcase talks, original articles, and posters on the behavior, physiology, ecology, and impact of invasive species on their host environment.

To present your work, you can submit a proposal to Mark Hauber until 30 November 2012.
