Thank you all for attending the BioMove Symposium 2018!
The 1st BioMove Symposium takes place from 26th to 28th September in Potsdam, Germany.
In four sessions, we are going to discuss the interplay between movement and biodiversity.
The journal Movement Ecology will publish a special issue linked to the BioMove Symposium. We welcome all sorts of manuscripts that make an explicit link between movement ecology and biodiversity research. You can find further information here.
Plenary speakers are
- Dries Bonte (Ghent University, Belgium)
- Diego Fontaneto (CNR-ISE, Verbania, Italy)
- Wayne Getz (UC Berkeley, USA)
- Nina Farwig (Philipps-Universität Marburg, Germany)
Since the launch of the research training group “BioMove” in 2015, we work on integrating movement ecology and biodiversity research, focusing on a common study area in the agricultural landscape of northern Germany. Within diverse projects – spanning various taxa and techniques such as modeling, genetics, and animal tracking – we focus on the ecological key question of what shapes biodiversity. The Symposium will be organized by the BioMove PhD students.
The meeting will be hosted by
- University of Potsdam
- Leibniz Institute for Zoo and Wildlife Research (IZW)
- Leibniz Centre for Agricultural Landscape Research (ZALF)
- Freie Universität Berlin
