Dear colleagues,

The organizers of the Czech Republic meeting of the European Platform for Biodiversity Research Strategy (EPBRS) and the BioStrat project coordinators invite you to participate in the electronic conference 'Strategies in Taxonomy: Research in a Changing World' which will run from the 14th April - 5th May 2009. The results of this electronic conference will be presented at the EPBRS delegates meeting in Pruhonice, Czech Republic on the 19th - 22nd May 2009.

The E-conference preceding the Czech Republic EPBRS meeting will focus on the following questions:

  • Inventory and identification: 'What do we have, and how does it fit among its relatives?'
  • Understanding patterns and change: 'Where is it, what's happening to it, and where is it going?'
  • Ecological functions and services: 'What does it do?'
  • Ecological functions and services: 'What does it do it with?'
  • Open access to information: 'How do I find out this information and how do I manage it?'


This e-conference welcomes scientists from taxonomy and non-taxonomy biodiversity research as well as policy makers and users of taxonomic information.

As a participant of this e-conference you will automatically receive all posted contributions via your e-mail, which you will also be able to respond to via e-mail. There is also the option to post contributions on the e-conference web-board.

If you would like to opt out of receiving e-mail notifications of posted contributions but would still like access to the web-board, or be un-subscribed from this e-conference altogether please notify Fiona Grant on fian@ceh.ac.uk as soon as possible.

We would greatly appreciate your help in forwarding this announcement to anyone who might be interested.

Kind regards,

E-conference organizers.
