transition to a new integrated and sustainable approach to species conservation

 October 12-15, 2024 – Dushanbe – Tajikistan

About the conference

Scientific research is fundamental for effective management and to foster species and ecosystems conservation. The recent history of some mountain ungulates gives examples on how these results can be achieved. In the last decades, however, as research and technology progresses and knowledge increases, new questions arise on exciting and urgent challenges both for researchers and managers. Answering to those questions will require an inclusive approach that integrates different perspectives. It is with this aim, that we are delighted to invite you to the 9th Conference on Mountain Ungulates (Dushanbe, Tajikistan, October 12-15, 2024). As in the spirit of past editions, the goal of the conference is to share the most recent and interesting results of research on mountain ungulates as well as to provide networking opportunities for researchers and wildlife managers. Several topics will be covered, with the ambitious aim of facilitating the integration of different research fields and connecting them with management and conservation.

Sessions on the following topics are planned: Ecology, Behaviour and Evolution; Genetics; Systematics and Palaeontology; Health and Diseases; Conservation and Management; Monitoring methods; Conservation technologies.
