8th New Guinea Biology Conference
At the 8th New Guinea Biology Conference (Port Moresby
(PNG), 26-28 September, 2006) 38 presentations were held, three by key-note
speakers and 35 results of surveys. Five presentations were concerning
entomological items, of which four were results of the New Guinea Research
Center in Madang. The kind of surveys will be good examples for students and
teachers in Papua.
