Online symposium on isopod biology.

The 11th International Symposium on Terrestrial Isopod Biology will  be hosted from Ghent, Belgium by Spinicornis (the Terrestrial Isopod Research Group of Belgium) and the Forest & Nature Lab of the Faculty of Bioscience Engineering of Ghent University.

This online edition will further inspire and facilitate collaborations on isopod research.

When?

The symposium will cover three half days from the 12th until the 14th July 2021.

All presentations will be given online in the afternoon Central European Time (UTC +2).

Additionally, on the 13th of July following the presentations, an online social event will be organised to get to know each other better and to discuss research and other topics.

  5. Ecology and Biodiversity
  6. Biogeography

Each session will start with a keynote presentation by a world leading expert in the field, followed by shorter oral presentations on the topic.
