This symposium is hosted by the Biodiversity Institute

The Biodiversity Institute’s research theme on Biodiversity Technologies aims to engage in agenda-setting research from which it develops web-based tools that enable an easy identification of species and the assessment of important regions for biodiversity conservation. This year’s Biodiversity Institute Symposium (BioSymOx) highlights the use of emerging technologies in biodiversity science and conservation.

The symposium will bring together over 25 speakers - presenting the latest research and developments in biodiversity technologies that are used in wide variety of settings and applications. The symposium topics include: bioacoustics, citizen science, field data collection, mapping and genetic technologies. There will also be presentations that look at the ways in which these diverse technologies can change behaviours and encourage new thinking.
