Congrès Nématodes, Bioindicateurs à Carlow (Irlande)

La troisième édition du congrès Nématodes, Bioindicateurs a eu lieu à Carlow (Irlande) les 28 et 29 juin 2017.

Many anthropogenic factors have a negative impact on the quality of soil, air and water leading to detrimental environmental changes. This conference will bring together experts working to understand the response of key food web organisms to these changes. Scientists from across the world using a common platform, the phylum Nematoda, will present their studies on these environmentally important organisms to address questions of habitat and ecosystem changes at community, individual organism and molecular levels in terrestrial, freshwater and marine ecosystems. Furthermore, this event will aid towards the dissemination of information by ecologists who aim to understand the underlying mechanisms leading to nematode community change. It is envisaged that it will disseminate high impact science that could influence not only other scientists, but also regulators and policy makers




Themes for this symposium will include, but will not be limited to

Role of nematodes in ecosystems

Nematode biodiversity

Nematode community analyses: classical

Nematode community analyses: molecular

Nematode ecotoxicology and genotoxicity
