RECALL – TiBE2011, Trends in Biodiversity and Evolution: New Challenges in Conservation Genetics

TiBE, Trends in Biodiversity and Evolution, is an annual meeting organised by CIBIO, Research Centre in Biodiversity and Genetic Resources/InBio, Associate laboratory. These meetings aim to bring together senior researchers, post-graduate and graduate students in Biological Sciences, and promote a relaxing but insightful discussion about cutting edge topics on Biodiversity and Evolution. Each year a specific subject will be chosen, and recognised senior scientists will be invited to report their views, opinions and novel results. Young researchers and post-graduate students will also be invited to participate and present their recent and innovative work.

TiBE2011 will be devoted to “New Challenges in Conservation Genetics”, a discipline which has received considerable attention in recent years by evolutionary biologists, and has voraciously incorporated many technologies to speed up and increase the accuracy of conservation decision-making. It will take place at December 5 – 6th in Campus Agrário de Vairão, University of Porto, and will be hosted by ConGen – Conservation Genetics and Wildlife Management research group, at CIBIO.

The scientific program will include four invited plenary lectures from prominent researchers, 16 oral communications (to be selected from participants) and two poster sessions covering the most up-to-date findings in this field of Evolutionary Biology.

We hope that the University Porto-Campus of Vairão, located in a beautiful rural area in Vila do Conde (20 km north of Porto), will provide an excellent atmosphere for such scientific forum in one of the most interesting and stimulating areas of Biology.
