32 years after the first conference in France, the 11th symposium on wild boar and other suids will be held in Luxembourg. The fact that the conference being successfully held with over 100 participants, in a 2-year rhythm, shows the importance of an exchange of advances by research teams working in Europe, but also around the world. Increasing knowledge about this economically important species, mainly with the aim to achieve effective, humane and environmentally sensitive management and conservation of suids is of high concern to conservation biologists, wildlife managers, veterinarians, policy makers and the general public.
The worldwide interest in ecology, management and population control of these species is continuing to grow rapidly. Therefore, the time was ripe for the 11th Symposium to provide an up-to-date overview of the most recent advances.
The most recent results from basic research, on population monitoring, behaviour, ecology, spatial use or genetics have been presented to address problems such as urbanisation, disease transmission or damage mitigation in 10 sessions, 2 workshops and one poster session.
The 12th international symposium on wild boar and other suids will take place in Czech Republic, in 2018.
