The IAB World Congress 2009 in South Africa: an update

The dates for our South Africa meeting have been set for 16-20 August 2009.
Participants should arrive on 15 August. This is a change from the tentative dates announced earlier because those dates were in conflict with the start of school in many northern hemisphere universities.
Terry Hedderson will be making a full, detailed announcement soon, but informed me that he is constructing a draft scientific programme with the following major themes.
  • African Bryology
  • Bryophyte Biology (A general session)
  • Evolutionary Community Ecology
  • Conservation Biology
  • Phylogeny & Systematics
  • Phylogeography & Biogeography
We will keep you informed through Bryonet and the IAB-website
