Restoration of barbel in the Neris River

On 10–11 October, Trakai hosted an international scientific-practical conference "Resources, threats and prospects of rare and endangered fish". Presentations were delivered by Nature Research Centre's scientists: Dr Vytautas Kesminas and Dr Vytautas Rakauskas. The conference focused on the issues of release of aquarium-reared barbel juveniles (aged 0+ and 1 + years) into the Neris River. The barbel (Barbus barbus) is a typical benthophagous river fish species. Lithuania is the northernmost distribution range of the barbel. However, climate warming might cause the occurrence of this species in the neighbouring more northerly countries. The number of barbels decreased in the second half of the last century due to intensive anthropogenic pressure. One of the most efficient measures to reconstruct barbel populations is their artificial rearing and introduction into natural water bodies. Barbel reconstruction issues have...

Lithuanian Scientists Society's invitation to conference

To: Heads and scientists of Lithuanian research and higher education institutions Invitation to Conference This year, the Lithuanian Scientists Society celebrates its 30th anniversary. The society was established on 7 October 1989. It is involved in manor activities to promote the development of research and higher education in Lithuania: prepared the drafts of the first Law on Science and Studies (1991), Law on State Pensions for Scientists (1994) and a number of subordinate legal regulations; presents proposals to the Seimas, Government and Research Council  on the issues of science and studies; from July 1989 the society issues a newspaper "Mokslo Lietuva"  focused on achievements, solutions and problems in the area of research and studies. The conference will take place on 7 October (Monday), 11:00 A.M.  at the Seimas of the Republic of Lithuania. The draft programme of the conference is already...
