2021 European Pond Conservation Network Conference

25th-26th May 2021 

The 9th European Pond Conservation Network (EPCN) conference will be held, virtually, over 25-25th May 2021, with the Organising Committee based in the UK at UCL, University of Stirling, Newcastle University, University of Huddersfield and the Freshwater Habitats Trust. Responding to the considerable need to conserve European ponds, the conference will combine pond biology, hydrology, function and landscape ecology with pond conservation practice and welcomes both scientists and conservation practitioners to the meeting. The conference will include both oral and poster presentations aimed at increasing integration of the European pond community. To this end the evening of the 25th May will be a fun pond-centred virtual party event.

Please register online at Eventbrite and make sure to sign-up for free EPCN membership to attend this meeting for free.

The 2021 EPCN Conference is supported by the UK Natural Environment Research Council (NERC)-funded Hydroscape project which aims to determine how stressors and connectivity interact to influence biodiversity and ecosystem function. Attendees of the EPCN conference will be given the opportunity to interact with Hydroscape team members and listen to talks about this project.
