National Parks Austria and Hohe Tauern National Park are organising the International Symposium for Research in Protected Areas at the Faculty of Natural Sciences, University of Salzburg on 2 and 3 November 2017.

The sixth edition of international conference – held every four years since 1996 – will cover concepts and research on wilderness, biodiversity, species protection, ecology and the function of running waters, the effects of climate change and the role of long-term monitoring.
