Esteemed colleagues, dear biologists!
On behalf of the Organising and Program Committee, it is my great pleasure to invite you to the 13th Croatian Biological Congress which will be held from the 19th to the 23rd of September 2018. in Poreč located in the western part of Istria peninsula. For more than thirty-five years this congress has traditionally offered biologists and numerous scientists of related disciplines from Croatia and abroad the unique opportunity to gather together. This year, participants will be able to present the results of their research via oral and poster presentations within eight thematic sections (Genetics, cellular and molecular biology; Evolution, systematics, phylogeny and biogeography; Microbiology; Marine biology; Biology of terrestrial and freshwater ecosystems; Toxicology and ecotoxicology; Conservational biology, nature and environment protection; Comparative physiology, immunobiology and human biology). It is also with a great pleasure that we can announce four satellite symposia that will be held as part of this year`s Congress: 2nd Biology education symposium, 7th Symposium of the Croatian Society for Plant Biology, 4th Symposium of the Croatian Entomological Society, 2nd Croatian Symposium of Biologists in Health Care and the 2nd Balkan herpetological. Plenary lectures concerning the latest findings within biological sciences will be delivered by a number of guest speakers. We also hope that you will actively participate in our round table discussions whose topics will cover important issues for all biologists and also in useful workshops we prepared for your benefit; both of which we hope will attract your interest and so help contribute to the creative atmosphere of the Congress. Hope to see you in September!
President of the Organising and Program Committee
