8th International Phycological Congress 2005

Location: Durban (South Africa)
Event Type: Meeting
Event Date: 2005-08-13    
End Date: 2005-08-19

Event Description:
The International Phycological Conference in Durban South Africa covers a range of topics in algal biology including population genetics, phylogenetics, genomics, ecology, physiology, biological clocks, biomineralization, photosynthesis, stress responses and symbiosis, effects of climate change on algae, effects of invasive species on resident communities and socioeconomic impacts of algal cultivation.

All the specifics about the scientific and organizational aspects of the conference can be found in the pdf file of the second circular.

MarBEF is sponsoring this conference. This means that 1 participant from each MarBEF member can book his/her Travel and Subsistence costs to a maximum of 1000 Euro to attend the conference at the (member's own) account of MarBEF (PLEASE NOTE that there is a LIMIT of 1 participant per MarBEF member institute who may offset their costs using this 1000 Euro; also the MarBEF members should ensure that the sum of external activities does not exceed 20 % of their total T&S budget in MarBEF).

Please contact Wiebe Kooistra for more information on the conference and send him a copy of your abstract so that he can list them in the final report to MarBEF.
