1st Balkan Herpetological Symposium

Dear colleagues,

      It is our special pleasure and honour, on behalf of the Croatian Herpetological Society – Hyla and the Croatian Biological Society to invite you to participate in the 1st Balkan Herpetological Symposium that will be held in the city Sveti Martin na Muri, Croatia from 18 September – 23 September 2015 at LifeClass Terme Sveti Martin (address: Grkaveščak bb, Sveti Martin na Muri, Croatia). As this is the first meeting of herpetologists from the Balkan Peninsula, the symposium will be held within the 12th Croatian Biological Congress. 
1st Balkan Herpetological Symposium    For many years now, there is a distinct need to create a network of herpetologists working in this geographical area and give them the opportunity to meet periodically. We hope to have the representatives of all herpetological societys throughout the Balkan region on this conference, especially future experts who have only just started their journey in the Field of Herpetology. This event is a good opportunity for presenting your research and exchanging experience with your colleagues. Moreover, you will get the opportunity to enjoy presentations of top lecturers, participate in round table discussions, to experience the beautiful Mura River and the city of Čakovec through planed excursions.
