•    author affiliations:

-    starting with a number in superscript, with no space between the number and the first word of the affiliation,

-    font size 10, italics [Ctrl+i], centred

-    each affiliation must be provided in a new line

-    please do not provide email addresses or ORCID numbers here – these will be listed at the end of the Abstract Book,

-    if you want to save words for other parts of the abstract, we suggest shortening the affiliation to the institution name and the country name (e.g. a 3-word phrase: 1Jagiellonian University, Poland instead of a 20-word phrase: 1Department of Invertebrate Evolution, Institute of Zoology and Biomedical Research, Faculty of Biology, Jagiellonian University, Gronostajowa 9, 30-387 Kraków, Poland),

•    abstract body:

-    font size 12, regular font (but occasional use of italics and bold font is allowed if required), text justified

-    divided into four parts: Background, Methods, Results, and Conclusions

-    each of these parts constitutes a separate paragraph and each starts in bold font and ends with a colon (also in bold),

•    keywords, listed alphabetically and without a full stop after the last keyword (there is no limit on the number of keywords, but they must fit within the total limit of 400 words per abstract),

•    do not provide references (abbreviated taxonomic authorities, i.e. with the first authors followed by an italicised “et al.” should be provided in small caps in the text, but without listing the references)

•    Insert blank lines with font size set to 12 between: the title and authors, affiliations and abstract, abstract and keywords

•    please do not leave a blank line below the last line of text (i.e. the last keyword must be in the last line of your file).
