The Institute of Technology Carlow, in collaboration with the Association of Applied Biologists, and the Organising Committee of the 3rd International Symposium on Nematodes as Environmental Bioindicators, are delighted to invite colleagues to participate in this event, which will take place on 28th and 29th of June 2017 at the Institute's Main Campus.

this event will aid towards the dissemination of information by ecologists who aim to understand the underlying mechanisms leading to nematode community change. It is envisaged that it will disseminate high impact science that could influence not only other scientists, but also regulators and policy makers.

Themes for this symposium will include, but will not be limited to:

  • Role of nematodes in ecosystems
  • Nematode biodiversity
  • Nematode community analyses: classical
  • Nematode community analyses: molecular
  • Nematode ecotoxicology and genotoxicity
  • Transgenic nematode biosensors
  • Environmental change and nematode gene expression
  • Commercialisation potential of nematodes as bio-indicators
  • Environmental monitoring and risk assessment using nematodes
  • Sentinel nematode species
  • Nematodes in terrestrial and aquatic (fresh water and marine) habitats
  • Nematodes and sustainability
  • Various land use effects on nematode communities and/or individual taxa
  • Nematodes and climate change
