Biology meeting

The Swiss conference on organismic biology

The "biology" conference is the yearly joint congress of the Swiss Zoological Society, the Swiss Botanical Society, and the Swiss Systematics Society.

One expected output of the meeting is to demonstrate the enthusiasm of researchers in Switzerland, and neighboring countries, for research activities in fields as diverse as evolutionary biology, systematics, biodiversity, ecology, evo-devo, and many more…

The conference provides the opportunity for young scientists from Swiss universities and research institutions to present their work in organismic biology.
