This conference is being organised by the Research Institute of Wildlife Ecology of the University of Veterinary Medicine, Vienna. The central purpose of the Research Institute of Wildlife Ecology is to study the needs and behaviour of wild animals in ecological contexts, thus establishing the scientific basis for efficient nature,- species,- and environment conservation, and for sustainable use of multi-functional landscapes.
The institute undertakes long-term, inter-disciplinary and international research at different levels: individual, population, ecosystem, and landscape. We are particularly proud of the close collaboration between scientists from various disciplines, such as biology, veterinary science and genetics, at the Institute. In the process we employ a variety of methods, from simple observation to chemical analysis, molecular biology and mathematical modelling.
