Deadline MARBEF Newsletter N1

Event Type: Other
Event Date: 2004-06-01    

Event Description:
We are aiming to produce the first MARBEF newsletter by July 1st 2004. The newsletter will act as a dissemination tool not just to those in the MARBEF network but also to the wider marine community in Europe.

The newsletter will have several sections and I invite submissions of articles on the following.

  • MARBEF progress
  • Details of the aims and objectives the MARBEF network, list participating insitutes, contact details for the various themes etc.
  • Short reports from MARBEF workshops and meetings.
  • Articles on taxonomy and biodiversity.
  • Wider marine biodiversity and ecosystem function topics
  • Articles on marine biodiversity issues around Europe
  • Reports on local, national, European and international marine biodiversity and marine biodiversity and ecosystem function, projects and initiatives (cruises, research, etc)
  • Articles on local or regional marine biodiversity issues (exotic species invasions, nature conservation or management issues, etc)
  • Student projects - these are particularly encouraged
  • Meetings and conferences
  • Marine biodiversity workshops, conferences and meetings

Articles should be written in a popular 'National Geographic' style and all articles can be accompanied with two full photographs, maps or drawings (supplied in a suitable format). Please send me image files rather than pictures embedded in a word document. Articles should be between 1/2 and 2 pages.

All articles and newsletters will be archived on the MARBEF website ( Examples of the types of articles I am looking for, produced for the BIOMARE and MARS newsletters, are available at the BIOMARE website ( on the newsletters page.

In order for articles to be compiled into the newsletter prior to publication I would need contributions by the 1st June 2004.

If you are willing to offer an article for the newsletter please do not hesitate to contact me. I thank you all in advance.
