Symposium of Biological Control 2010

http://www.sith.itb.ac.id/biologicalcontrol2010/index.php

Biological control referred to the use of organism to control populations of other organism. This beneficial agent includes a wide variety of life forms, i.e. plants, animals and microorganisms commonly present in natural ecosystems that help maintain the balance of nature by regulating the density of their host or prey populations. An increase of concern over environmental problems as the result of intensive use of synthetic agents such as pesticides, herbicides and fungicides has led to the recognition of the importance of biological control. BIOLOGICAL CONTROL 2010 is organised to promote research and application of biological control. Participation of researcher and practitioner are particularly welcome.

The symposium will be focused on the topics of management, biodiversity, host/prey population dynamics, application and production of biological control agent. The symposium will be organized as a one day seminar where researcher, practitioner and those who are interested in the topic can present and discuss their works.

Invited Speakers

  1. Intan Ahmad, Ph.D (Institut Teknologi Bandung, Indonesia)
  2. Dr. Damayanti Buchori (Institut Pertanian Bogor, Indonesia)
  3. Dr. Shinsaku Koji (Kanzawa Univesity, Japan)
  4. Ms. Linley Hayes (Landcare Research, New Zealand

Participants who wish to give an oral presentation are required to submit a soft copy of abstract of their oral/poster presentation (less than 1 page) by September 30th, 2010.

A full paper (in Microsoft Word document with figure in tif format) should be submitted by October 30th, 2010. The paper should be written in English with journal article format. It should contains title of the work, name of the author(s), institution with a complete address, abstract, background, objectives, methods, result and conclusion of the paper.

Participants who are presenting their poster should submit their hardcopy poster by November 23th, 2010. The poster should at least state the title, name of the author(s), institution with a complete address. The poster should be 120 cm high and 80 cm wide.

The symposium will be jointly organized by School of Life Sciences and Technology, Institut Teknologi Bandung, Institut Pertanian Bogor, Universitas Padjadjaran


Biosystematics Role on Natural Resource Management in Indonesia

ext-semnasbioSeminar Nasional Biologi Unsoed

Fakultas Biologi UNSOED akan menyelenggarakan SEMINAR NASIONAL dengan tema “Peran Biosistematika dalam Pengelolaan Sumberdaya Hayati Indonesia” pada tanggal 12 DESEMBER 2009 di Kampus Fakultas Biologi UNSOED, Purwokerto.

Pemanfaatan dan konservasi sumber daya hayati adalah dua kegiatan yang tidak dapat kita abaikan. Kedua kegiatan tersebut akan berhasil dengan baik jika informasi dasar seperti Biosistematika dari sumberdaya yang akan dikelola sudah diketahui dengan baik. Oleh karena itu Seminar Nasional ini bertujuan untuk:

  • Membangun informasi pentingnya ilmu Biosistematika dalam upaya pemanfaatan dan konservasi sumbedaya hayati Indonesia
  • Mengoptimalkan informasi untuk pemanfaatan sumberdaya hayati Indonesia
  • Mengoptimalkan informasi dalam mendukung usaha konservasi sumberdaya hayati Indonesia

SAGE2009 Conference: Southeast Asian Gateway Evolution

SAGE2009 Conference: Southeast Asian Gateway Evolution
14-17 September 2009: Royal Holloway University of London
http://sage2009. rhul.ac.uk

The Southeast Asian Gateway is the site of the Indonesian Throughflow between the Pacific and Indian Oceans. It is the only low latitude link between the world¢s oceans, and is increasingly regarded as an important influence on global climate. The throughflow passes through the present zone of collision between Australia and SE Asia. The collision began about 25 million years ago, but SE Asia has a long history of growth by the addition of continental fragments rifted from Gondwana dating back to the Palaeozoic. The fauna and flora display a similar complexity which is partly linked to the geology.
