Association for Tropical Biology and Conservation Conference
The conference theme is Tropical biodiversity: surviving the food, energy and climate crisis.
It will tackle major environmental issues of relevance to professional biologists, managers and politicians, while also exploring the amazing biological diversity of the tropics, as exemplified by the forests and oceans of Indonesia. The conference will comprise plenary talks, parallel oral sessions, and poster sessions, with banquets, and cultural events. The conference location actually overlooks Wallace's line and provides an excellent base for field trips to the various islands of Indonesia.
The Association for Tropical Biology and Conservation (ATBC) is the world's largest professional society devoted to the furtherance of tropical biology and tropical conservation. It was founded in 1963 to promote research and to foster the exchange of ideas among biologists working in tropical environments.
