When beetles meet fungi

The best conferences are not too small and not too large. My long time favourites are biannual symposia on the conservation of saproxylic beetles in Europe. I have attended every single one since 2004, and every time I learned a lot and met great people in my field. I am excited to see Bavarian forests this year near St. Oswald, Germany from 8 to 10 June 2018!

The goal of this symposium is to present the state of the art on research concerning the ecology, conservation, and management of saproxylic organisms, alongside with research dealing with transversal approaches related to their biodiversity, distribution, taxonomy, phylogeography and environmental issues.

say organisers at the event’s webpage. Jörg Müller and his team promise an exciting symposium by the largest national park in Germany, with a specific focus on cooperation between research on wood-inhabiting fungi and on saproxylic beetles.
