Great Success of attendance at the Second European Congress of Conservation Biology

News from Prague. From the 1st to the 5th September the Second European Congress on Conservation Biology took place at The Czech University of Life Sciences, Prague. More than 1200 Conservation Scientist, students, manager and policy makers from 56 countries meet for this very important event, that takes place every three years in Europe. There was a 20 % increase in attendance compared to previous meeting in 2006 in Eger, Hungary. In this way the ECCB becomes, uncontested, as the main Conservation Biology scientific meeting in Europe. Very interesting and provocative plenary talks were given by Dr. Ladislav Miko, Minister of Environment, Czech Republic, Dr. Joan Martinez-Alier, Universitat Autónoma de Barcelona, Dr. William Sutherland, University of Cambridge, and Dr. Petr Pysek, Academy of Sciences of the Czech Republic.
