Abstracts as pdf

 

ForBio – the Research School in Biosystematics, fosters excellence in biosystematics research in the Nordic countries through training and courses since its initiation in 2010. Graduate students, postdocs and researchers associated with ForBio make significant contributions to research in the field, publishing several papers each week. The Norwegian Biodiversity Information Centre and the Swedish Species Information Centre both accumulate, and disseminate information concerning species and habitats, and thereby serve as national sources of biodiversity-data. The information centres both host a Taxonomy Initiative, where the main goals is to ensure that information about the biological diversity is collected over the long term, with a special emphasis on lesser well-known species. The full day symposium provides a platform for some of our excellent members and beneficiaries to share their research with the systematics community.

 

 

All slots for this symposium have been filled and abstract submission for oral presentations for this symposium is now closed.
