International Bat Research Online Symposium

In 2021, Leibniz-IZW launched the symposium series "International Bat Research Online Symposium" (IBROS). The first online symposium of this series took place in November 2021 and addressed the conflict between bats and wind energy worldwide. The second edition will be held in January 2023. This year, the focus will be on commuting and migratory movements of bats and the anthropogenic factors that influence these movements. This series of events is aimed at scientists, experts as well as representatives of authorities and non-governmental organizations.
