Days of biodiversity in July 2022

Dear MoFA members and friends of malacology!

In July 2022 there will be some interesting actions to record the biodiversity in the Austrian federal states.
For the group of molluscs, support is still needed for the recordings in Tyrol and Carinthia.

During a Day of Biodiversity, species of the respective organism group are recorded in defined study areas. It offers a great opportunity for exchange with experts of other organism groups. In addition, participation is also recommended for young researchers specifically interested in malacology. The recorded data will be forwarded to the organizers, and a joint contribution to the journal Arianta is planned.

Events:

July 8-9Day of Biodiversity 2022 in Tyrol (Ehrwald basin).

Please register directly with the organizer, there is a limited number of accommodations available. Supplementary determinations for the species list are possible until August 15. For the mollusc group, please also briefly contact a MoFA member on-site (Sonja Bamberger).

July 29-31Day of Biodiversity 2022 in the Hohe Tauern National Park (Malta Valley, Carinthia).

Registration for the actual event is already closed. Own observations in the region can be made until Sept. 30 and entered in Observation.org.
For a joint field trip to the study areas, please get in contact.
