XIIth SCAR Biology Symposium

Date: 10th - 14th July 2016
Location: Leuven, Belgium

The main theme is "Scale Matters". From the small molecular scale, through population and large ecosystem scale, biological processes and diversity span all these levels. Understanding these processes, as well past and present patterns of biodiversity, are essential for understanding possible threats to Antarctic biology and their impact. With this Symposium we want to focus on understanding biological distribution and trends, as well as adaptation and processes both in the marine and terrestrial realm, including the human biology. Special attention will be paid to multidisciplinary research and how combining insight from different fields can help our understanding of biology in this unique region. An important aspect of this symposium will focus on the societal impact of Antarctic biological sciences and how this can be communicated, not only to the general public, but also to policy makers.
