NUS 25-26 Sep 2007 - "Across Land And Sea"

Category : talks

International Workshop on Tropical Island Biodiversity: "Across Land And Sea"
25 - 26 September 2007
National University of Singapore

This event is organized by the Department of Biological Sciences, National University of Singapore, and a group of biologists involved in the 21st Century COE Program, Comprehensive analyses on biodiversity in coral reef and island ecosystems in Asian and Pacific regions, at the University of the Ryukyus, Japan.

The workshop will focus on the biodiversity of tropical islands and includes both terrestrial and marine environments. Attention will be given to biogeographic patterns, mechanisms influencing biodiversity, response of biodiversity to temperature change, and future directions in biodiversity research.

There will be two days of talks with four keynote speakers, 24 oral presentations, 14 poster presentations, and two roundtable discussions. The oral presentations are divided into three themes: Diversity of Marine Organisms, Diversification and Extinction of Island Animals, and Diversity and Biogeography of Island Plants. An optional fieldtrip to Tioman Island, Malaysia, 27 – 29 September, has also been organized (a pre-arranged field trip).

Update - The workshop will be held at the Department of Biological Sciences Conference Room (Science Drive 4, Blk S3 Level 5). The event is free and there is no need to sign up (just come along), but please make arrangements for your own lunch. (Canteens in Science Faculty and Yusof Ishak House are nearby).

See habitatnews.nus.edu.sg/events/ALAS-sep2007 for details.

Thanks to Ng Ngan Keee and Peter Todd.
