Welcome Information

It is our great honour and pleasure to invite you to the International Biogeography Society (IBS) Special Meeting 2016 (IBS2016-China for short). The IBS, founded in 2001, is the world’s leading scientific society of biogeography and provides the primary forum for biogeographers worldwide by hosting biannual conferences or spatial meetings. IBS2016-China will be the first IBS meeting held in Asia.

As the interdisciplinary of ecology and evolutionary biology, biogeography is a dynamic and burgeoning field that seeks to understand the role of historical factors in shaping biodiversity, to develop predictive capacities for gauging how biodiversity will respond to our rapidly changing world, and to enhance biodiversity conservation. To encourage communication between different fields, the theme of the IBS2016-China is set to be “the Biogeography of Ecology”. In particular, the meeting will include seven symposia:

1) Biodiversity patterns and maintenance;

2) Phylogeography;

3) Species distribution under global change;

4) Community phylogenetics;

5) Biological invasion;

6) Conservation biogeography;

7) Functional biogeography.
