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.
