Summer conferences: In July, Péter Mauchart, Bálint Pernecker and Zoltán
Csabai participated the
10th SEFS (Symposium for European Freshwater Sciences) in Olomouc,
Czech Republic, Bálint won the Best Student Poster prize (congratulation).
The same week, Arnold Móra attended the
20th International Symposium on Chironimidae in Trento, Italy. Péter
Mauchart and Zoltán Csabai are now preparing for the
17th ICA (International Colloquium on Amphipoda) Which will be held in
September in Trapani, Italy, while Péter Sály will attend on the
(International Comference on Community Ecology) in Budapest, Hungary.
Péter Mauchart et al. manuscript on Gammarus coexistence has been
accepted in International Reviews of Hydrobiology.

Spring Conferences: In March, Zoltán Csabai has participated the Kick of
Conference of DNAqua.net
COST Action project in Essen, Germany, he is also involved in the project
as a substitute MC member. Still in March: Péter Sály and Ágnes Maroda
have attended the Hungarian
Ichtyological Conference in Debrecen. A talk has been presented by
Ági. In April: Péter Mauchart (oral presentatuon) and Ágnes Maroda (poster
presentation) visited the
Blood for Fresh Water conference in České Budějovice (Czech Republic).
This year, the conference gathered around 60 students and young
researchers from 10 countries covering high diversity of research
interests in freshwater sciences. At the end of March we organized the
13. MaViGe Conference, with 12 lectures
and 4 posters in Pécs at the department.
New paper has been published in Biological Conservation about the value of
small ponds developed in bomb crates. Our colleague, Arnold has been
involved to this project and is a co-author of the paper. Please click

(open access until 18 April).
Our new paper about aquatic heteropterans of Greek islands has been
appeared in Zootaxa. Please click

Péter Sály has started to work at our
department. He arrived from the Balaton Limnological Institute of the CER
HAS to strengthen our freshwater ecology group. His expertise and former works cover the field of fish community ecology. Welcome, Péter!

Péter Mauchart has won an UNKP grant for a year in the predoctoral
category. Congratulations, Péter!
