Congress mission

Every three years the International Society of Invertebrate Reproduction and Development arranges organization of a congress for those interested in the development and reproduction of both terrestrial and aquatic invertebrates. The previous congresses (South Africa in 2001, UK in 2004, and Panama in 2007) dealt mainly with marine invertebrates. The congress in Prague will include selected topics from the studies of marine, freshwater, as well as terrestrial animals. Special attention will be paid to genetic modifications that are being introduced to the control of some insects and are used routinely in agricultural crops. Meeting will be restricted to 120 participants.
