5th International Berlin Bat meeting: Are bats special? 10 – 12 March 2017, Berlin


With this conference, we would like to foster an exchange of ideas related to the question ‘Are bats special?’ We are especially keen on crossing disciplinary boundaries and hope that the discussion among ecologists, geneticists, morphologists, physiologists, immunologists, virologists and conservationists will advance the field substantially. We suggest several exciting topics as sessions or workshops. In addition, we have invited plenary speakers to review novel applications and exciting developments in their respective research areas.

The deadline for submission of workshop and session titles is 01 August 2016.
