Overview

The 2nd International Training Course on Frontiers in Animal Ecology and Conservation Biology” will be held in Beijing, 22 November - 1 December 2014. The training sessions aim to: 1) Promote new theories, changes, and developments in methodology of animal ecology, along with promoting new technologies in the field, and conservation biology; 2) Enhance the overall academic understandings and innovation of animal ecology and conservation biology, and 3) Facilitate communication among animal ecologists and conservationists from developing countries, and offer a platform for face-to-face communication with leading scientists.

Leading scientists of biology and conservation biology from China and abroad will give lectures to researchers from developing countries, especially targeting early-career scientists and senior scientists wishing to further their professional development. The courses will introduce new concepts in cutting edge science, highlight the latest progress and trends, and place emphasis on application and practice. Through these courses, participants will master new theories, techniques and methodologies of animal ecology and conservation biology, as well as understand cutting edge trends in research on animal ecology and conservation biology.

The training courses will culminate in an examination. Qualified participants will be awarded a certificate issued by the Institute of Zoology, CAS and ISZS and become a member of ISZS if not already a member.
