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.
