3rd International Symposium on Nematodes as Environmental Bioindicators

The Organising Committee of the 3rd International Symposium on Nematodes as Environmental Bioindicators (3ISNEB) are delighted to invite you to participate in this event which will take place on the 28th and 29th June 2017 at the Institute of Technology Carlow, Ireland.

Provisional Programme

(BASIS Points will be applied for)

This will be the third conference of its kind at an international level, after the successes of its predecessor events in June 2007 in Heriot Watt University, Edinburgh, UK, and in July 2012 in Ghent University, Ghent, Belgium, and it will happen under the auspices of the Association of Applied Biologists

Many anthropogenic factors have a negative impact on the quality of soil, air and water leading to detrimental environmental changes. This conference will bring together experts working to understand the response of key food web organisms to these changes. Scientists from across the world using a common platform, the phylum Nematoda, will present their studies on these environmentally important organisms to address questions of habitat and ecosystem changes at community, individual organism and molecular levels in terrestrial, freshwater and marine ecosystems. Furthermore, this event will aid towards the dissemination of information by ecologists who aim to understand the underlying mechanisms leading to nematode community change. It is envisaged that it will disseminate high impact science that could influence not only other scientists, but also regulators and policy makers.
