The Past, Present, and Future of Asian Biodiversity:
March 25-28th 2017
Welcome to Xishuangbanna!
We represent the Northern limits of Asia-Pacific, a global diversity hotspot in addition to China's most diverse region!
This year the ATBC-AP will focus on Biodiversity of the region, from understanding its evolution, to how to best conserve it under increasingly challenging conditions. The conference aims to stimulate discussion on thematic issues to regional conservation, and showcase the latest theories on the origin of the Asia-Pacific region's extraordinary diversity.
The conference will focus on four main themes, which will run in parallel throughout the conference, and will each be represented by a keynote presentation.
a). Patterns and processes of Biodiversity
b). Biogeography and evolution of Southeast Asian Biodiversity
c). Addressing the threats to Southeast Asian Biodiversity
d). Sustainable use and production of natural resources
The conference also aims to nurture the next generation of talent, through mentoring, workshops and skill sessions and will also aim to facilitate the attendance of early career researchers from across the region.
We look forward to welcoming you to the Northern gateway to Asia-Pacific, and look forward to learning from your perspectives.
We have accepted symposia, and are now open for abstract submission. Please check our Keynotes and Symposia page!
Abstract submission and registration opened on December 1st and will run until January 22th. Abstracts can either be submitted to an existing symposium or to an appropriate one of our four conference themes, where they will be grouped with similar presentations to form symposia after abstract submission closes.
