BIOLIEF 2011 - 2nd World Conference on Biological Invasions and Ecosystem Functioning

Location: Mar del Plata, Argentina.
Event Type: Meeting
Event Date: 2011-11-21    
End Date: 2011-11-24

Event Description:
BIOLIEF 2011 will be a forum for the presentation, discussion, and synthesis of research on biological invasions in its broadest sense. The conference will place a particular emphasis on studies concerning the impact of invasive species on ecosystem functioning and/or services, irrespective of taxonomic groups or ecosystem types. However, studies on any other ecological aspect of biological invasions will also be welcome. Topics such as the spread of invasive species into ecosystems, the biogeography and history of species introductions, and the community- or species-level impact of biological invasions will also have an important coverage in the final conference program.

The first BIOLIEF meeting, held at Porto, Portugal on October 2009, featured renowned international speakers and gathered an attendance of nearly 300 people from more than 20 countries. BIOLIEF 2011 will continue that important initial effort toward strengthening the communication within the large international community of scientists devoted to the study of biological invasions.
