About the 10th International Conference on Biological Invasions

The 10th meeting, continues the Neobiota tradition, and encompasses a broad range of some of the more recent themes that have attracted new or renewed interest in biological invasions, both from a fundamental as well as a more practical perspective.  The conference will focus on the theme, New Directions in Invasive Biology.

The programme includes a number of plenary talks given by Internationally-recognised scientists whilst also providing an opportunity for a significant number of additional oral and poster presentations. A particular highlight will be a plenary presentation by Chris Thomas, from the University of York, on whether alien introductions always have negative effects on biological communities. Subsequent plenary talks will focus on the impact of biological invasions on ecosystems and ecological networks, the significance of functional traits and mutualisms and novel ways to manage alien species. The more traditional oral and poster presentations will be supplemented by two workshops on invasive species databases and on the implications of new EU regulations on alien species, which will provide a basis for more interactive debate and discussion.
