5th International Symposium on Fauna and Flora of Atlantic Islands

Location: University College Dublin, Ireland
Event Type: Meeting
Event Date: 2004-08-24    
End Date: 2004-08-27

Event Description:
While the faunal and floral communities of Atlantic islands are partially derived from adjacent continents, they have also developed independently through isolation. Though isolated, these islands share migratory animals and are linked by patterns of past floral and faunal dispersal. Threats to fragile island ecosystems arising from socio-economic pressures are many, creating problems for conservation and sustainable development. The multi-disciplinary approaches of Atlantic island researchers to different aspects
of island ecosystem function and biodiversity, make valuable contributions to the economic goal of sustainable use of their unique biological resources.

Registration fee: €300 full, €150 student (before April 30), €400 full, €200 student (after April 30)
