The British Phycological Society (BPS) announces its 67th Annual Meeting in Oban, Scotland. The BPS's stated vision is "to advance education by the encouragement and pursuit of all aspects of the study of algae and to publish the results of this research in a journal, and also in other publications which shall from time to time appear desirable, provided that all publications of the Society shall be available to the general public."
The event, hosted by the Scottish Association for Marine Science (SAMS), will feature its traditional “general phycology” session, and a plenary student session with prizes for best talk and best poster, named after Irene Manton. There will also be three exciting symposia on 1) algal interactions with microbiomes and grazers, 2) algal physiology in the limelight, and 3) blue carbon and the role of phytoplankton in long-term carbon burial.
