    The 9th International Symposium of Integrative Zoology

    27-31 August 2017, Xining, Qinghai Province, China


    The International Society of Zoological Sciences (ISZS, website:, together with its host, the Northwest Institute of Plateau Biology (NWIPB), Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS), supporters and partners, will organize the 9th International Symposium of Integrative Zoology, 27-31 August 2017, Xining, Qinghai province, China. The theme of the symposium is “Response and adaptation of animals to extreme environments.”


    Xining is the capital of Qinghai province which located in the Qinghai-Tibet plateau.  The Qinghai-Tibet plateau, also called as the Third Pole or “water tower”, contains the headwaters of the drainage basins of most of the streams in surrounding regions. It owns the unique geological, climatic and biological components of the world. The impacts of climate warming and extreme environments in the Qinghai-Tibet plateau are great interests to the scientists and public.


    The current major topics include:

    l  Phylogenetics and evolution

    l  Genomics, adaptation and evolution

    l  Ecophysiology

    l  Behavior and neuroscience

    l  Conservation Biology

    l  Global Change Biology

    l  Mass extinctions in the Anthropocene

    l  Plant-animal interactions

    l  Microbe-animal interactions

    l  Ecology of Infectious diseases

    l  Long-term population dynamics

    l  Range shifts and effects of climate change

    l  Zoogeography and diversity

    l  Biological Invasions

    l  Others


    Alongside of the symposium, there will be a field trip to visit the research station or sites of NWIPB located in the meadow ecosystem of the Qinghai-Tibetan plateau. We look forward to your participation!
