cE3c will organize EMAPI 2017 - International Conference on Ecology and Management of Alien Plant Invasions

25/10/2016

The Organising Committee welcomes you to the EMAPI of 2017!

EMAPI (Ecology and Management of Alien Plant Invasions) Conferences are held in alternate years at selected venues around the world. They are unique meetings where it is possible to present state of the art alien plant research.

Although the EMAPI acronym was first adopted in 2001, the earliest roots of EMAPI can be traced to an Invasive Plants Conference organized in 1992 by Max Wade, Lois Child and John Brock in Loughborough University, UK.

The aim of the EMAPI 2017 is to promote the opportunity to share findings and experiences — research, management, and policy — with professionals from around the world. Following the decision of the EMAPI Core Group in Hawaii during the last EMAPI meeting, the 14th Ecology and Management of Alien Plant Invasions World Congress will be held in Lisbon, from 4th to 8th September 2017.

The Congress aims to become a benchmark event, by gathering a large number of scientists, managers and policy makers from around the world, who will interact and explore ways to face global and regional challenges presented by alien plant invasions, for the benefit of the present and future generations.

A mid-conference field trip will offer first-hand experience with Portuguese coastal plant invasions, while also allowing extensive opportunities for networking. For this international meeting, we are expecting to bring together ~ 300 active researchers, managers and policy makers. A special discount registration will be available to students.

Organizer: Center for Ecology, Evolution and Environmental Changes (cE3c), University of Lisbon
