Event: Zoology 2018

In December 2018 the Royal Belgian Zoological Society organizes the Benelux Congress of Zoology with this year’s theme “Zoology in the Anthropocene” including two special sessions: 1. “Crossing borders: why and how biologists and climatologists must speak together”; 2. “How animals face global change: plasticity, resilience, adaptation”.

This zoology meeting will take place at the Antwerp Zoo on December 14th and 15th, simultaneous with the FWO Kennismakers meeting that will host a special theme on the Impact of Climate on Ecosystem services. 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.

A preliminary programme is available here.

BopCo researchers will be attending to present the following topics:
• Bushmeat for sale in Brussels
• Identifying Invasive Alien Species by DNA-barcoding: possibilities, gaps and pitfalls
• DNA-barcoding: an efficient tool for rapid identification of native and exotic mosquito species (Diptera: Culicidae) intercepted in Belgium
