The themes of ICMB XI are:

  • Biofouling dynamics: ships, plastics, and management strategies
  • Climate-driven invasion effects and responses
  • Socio-ecology and multiple perspectives on invasions
  • Invasion impacts: ecological interactions, ecosystem services, and economics
  • Methods for non-native species detection and assessment
  • Principles, patterns, and contrasts of invasions across ecosystems

Session titles will be added once abstract submissions have concluded and sessions are formed.
