Welcome!

The 30th Conference of the Plant Population Biology Section of the Ecological Society of Germany, Austria and Switzerland (GfÖ) was held in Halle/Saale, Germany, from 18th to 20th May 2017. PopBio 2017 was hosted by the Helmholtz Centre for Environmental Research (UFZ), the Martin Luther University Halle-Wittenberg, and the German Centre for Integrative Biodiversity Research (iDiv).

PopBio is the annual international meeting for people working in the field of plant population biology and ecology. The 2017 motto was “Population Biology in a Changing World” which had been tackled in five subfields: demography, population and evolutionary genetics, pollination, mechanisms of invasions and plant-pathogen and plant-herbivore interactions, for which international leading experts gave keynote lectures.

We hope that the POPBIO2017 in Halle stays with you for a long time. We certainly keep a fond memory of this meeting.

Cordially,

The PopBio 2017 organization committee

Harald Auge, Helge Bruehlheide, Walter Durka, Isabell Hensen, Tiffany Knight,

Susanne Lachmuth, and Stefan Michalski
