4th International Congress on Biological Invasions - ICBI 2023


The 4th International Congress on Biological Invasions (ICBI2023) will be hosted in Ōtautahi Christchurch, Aotearoa New Zealand, from 1-4 May 2023.

ICBI2023 will provide a science forum to explore, share and develop effective responses to the global challenges and threats that Invasive Alien Species (IAS) present to biodiversity, ecological systems and food production and security in terrestrial, freshwater and marine ecosystems.

Innovation, Collaboration, and Partnership are the high-level themes for ICBI2023. The focus is broad covering invasive animal (vertebrate, invertebrate), pathogen and weed species across terrestrial, freshwater and aquatic ecosystems, and spanning the biosecurity continuum (pre-border, at-border and post-border), and long-term pest management, including impacts on biodiversity.

For more information on the congress see the about page.
