Benelux Congress of Zoology

Zoology 2018

Zoology in the Anthropocene

On the 14th and the 15th of December, the ZOOLOGY meeting 2018 will take place back-to-back with the FWO Kennismakers meeting @ZOO (https://www.kennismakers.be/en-gb/home/) in Antwerp that will host a special theme on the Impact of Climate on Ecosystem services. The general theme of the ZOOLOGY meeting is “Zoology in the Anthropocene” with two special sessions: 1. “Crossing borders: why and how biologists and climatologists must speak together”; 2. “How animals face global change: plasticity, resilience, adaptation”. The congress will also welcome all contributions from the field of Zoology, from the molecule to the biosphere. Thematic sessions will be organized depending on received abstracts.

In addition, a workshop on basic skills for young scientists (networking, paper writing, reviewing, presentation feedback) will be organized on the 13th of December by the RBZS Young Zoologists Group. All zoologists, at any stage of their career, are very welcome to participate actively during the whole meeting, but young scientists are particularly encouraged to contribute (especially to the Young Zoologist workshop).
