In the morning of December, 6th the workshop Collecting for ABOL – ABOL for collectors addresses experts of taxonomic groups. In the afternoon a second workshop Application of DNA based methods in biodiversity monitoring addresses stakeholders, users and scientists. Both workshops will provide plenty of time for discussions, development of ideas and direct communication, to strengthen the biodiversity community of Austria.
The second day will see the conference with scientific talks. We ask you to submit abstracts for talks and/or posters relating to both research and application of DNA barcoding.
