The Section of Nature- and Environmental Protection of the Hungarian Biological Society together with the University of Szeged presents the next Hungarian Conference on Conservation Biology.

The aim of the conference is to present how conservation studies (and other knowledge systems) can contribute to desicision making, more specifically to practical nature conservation. The main focus is on the scientific and other knowledge necessary for effective nature conservation and where the Hungarian scientific community is in exploring this knowledge and also how the scientific and practical sector can influence decision making. The 9th HCCB aims to facilitate the communication and exchange of views between parties involved in nature conservation. Thus, participants are welcome from Hungary as well as from across the borders.
