SyngBIO 2017, the third meeting of researchers and other professionals working to understand the unique biology and conservation of Syngnathid fishes (seahorses, pipefishes, pipehorses, and seadragons) will be held May 14-19, 2017 in Tampa, Florida (USA) (hosted by The University of Tampa and co-hosted by Project Seahorse).
“Fantastical Fishes: Seahorses, Pipefishes and Seadragons into the Future” is our theme this year. Keynote, oral and poster presentations will embrace several aspects of seahorse, pipefish and seadragon biology, including: physiology, phylogenetics, phylogeography, genomics, sexual selection and mating systems, behavior, syngnathid breeding programs and aquaculture, and conservation and management. Attendees typically include almost 200 scientists, educators, aquarium professionals, graduate/undergraduate students, and government officials dedicated to understanding and protecting the unique biology of seahorses, pipefishes and seadragons. Come join us!
