Mission Biodiversity: Choosing new paths for conservation

The Society for Conservation Biology (SCB) is proud to team up for the first time with Agropolis international and the French Foundation for Research on Biodiversity (FRB) to host the 27th International Congress for Conservation Biology (ICCB) and the 4th European Congress for Conservation Biology (ECCB) to be held on August 2-6, 2015 in Montpellier, France.

The joint meeting brings together our international community of conservation professionals to address conservation challenges and present new findings, initiatives, methods, tools and opportunities in conservation science and practice. It’s also a marvelous opportunity to welcome scientists and conservationists from around the world to Europe. Scientists, students, managers, decision-makers, writers, and other conservation professionals across the globe are invited to participate in this event.

The City of Montpellier is located in south of France between the Mediterranean Sea and several national parks and is a hotspot of European biodiversity, at the heart of the scientific community of Montpellier and Languedoc-Roussillon region.

From Afghanistan to Zimbabwe and everywhere in between, authors from 109 countries submitted abstracts to present their research at ICCB-ECCB 2015. Click here for other impressive numbers from SCB’s 27th ICCB and 4th ECCB.
