In may possibly 2004, the Alexander Koenig Zoological study Museum hosted the 5th foreign Symposium on Tropical Biology. This sequence used to be confirmed on the ZFMK within the early Nineteen Eighties, and has variably occupied with systematics and ecology of tropical organisms, with an emphasis on Africa. prior volumes are these edited by means of Schuchmann (1985), Peters and Hutterer (1990), Ulrich (1997), and Rheinwald (2000). The symposium in 2004 used to be geared up by means of the Entomology division lower than the path of Michael Schmitt. The goal was once to target Africa instead of on a specific taxon, and to spotlight biodiversity in any respect degrees starting from molecules to ecosystems. This concentration used to be well timed in part a result of at present working BIOTA Africa programmes (BIOdiversity tracking Transect research in Africa). BIOTA is an interdisciplinary examine undertaking concentrating on sustainable use and conservation of biodiversity in Africa (http://www.biote-africa.de). consultation titles have been Biogeography and Speciation techniques, Phylogenetic styles and Systematics, variety Declines and Conservation, and utilized Biodiversity Informatics. each one consultation used to be opened via an invited speaker, and all jointly seventy seven lectures and fifty nine posters have been awarded. there have been over two hundred members and it used to be enjoyable to us to fulfill colleagues from 26 countries, together with Russia, Ukraine, Japan, united states, and ten African international locations. We thank all members for his or her useful contributions.

Filling in the network of conservation gaps with traditional reserves will therefore be expensive, and we now need to supplement traditional conservation initiatives with development support to make the land use more sustainable. g. , Johansson, 2001). The next big challenges, in our study region, will be to see how a good development can be started in the Kivu area, where existing reserves fail to serve the intended function because of continuous armed conflicts, and in the Itombwe highland, which still has no protection.
