In order to support the scientific discussion at national and international level on the problem of biological invasions and raise the profile of the issue in both academic and policy arena, the GEIB Grupo Especialista en Invasiones Biológicas is pleased to announce “The week of Biological Invasions”.
Two conferences on invasive alien species will be held in Pontevedra (Spain)
- EEI 2012 4th National Conference on Invasive Alien Species (10-11 September)
- NEOBIOTA 2012 7th European Conference on Biological Invasions (12-14 September)
The decision of convening EEI 2012 and NEOBIOTA 2012 - when the European Commission set combating invasive alien species as a target of the Europe 2020 strategy - represents the determination of the scientific community and conferences to respond to the global need to halt the increasing threats posed by invasive alien species.
