Creation of the Bryological Foundation Philippe De Zuttere

Dear Sir, Madam
Dear Bryological colleagues

We have the pleasure to announce the creation of the Bryological Foundation Philippe De Zuttere, which has taken place Saturday 23rd of October 2010.

The main aim of this foundation is to promote bryology in Belgium, but also to grant a prize (in euros) to all Belgian or European students whod like to realize a work in the domain of field bryology and whod see this work compensated by a jury, composed of eminent specialists.

In the following weeks, regulation for this prize will be elaborated and made available for all the candidates who are interested in.

As of today, you can already sign up if you are interested by sending an e-mail to nowellia -at

Also, a website is in the making and will contain all the information you need:

Among the other activities already launched, we can observe the realization of a high definition film on the bryoflora of the Viroin-Hermeton nature Park in the spring of 2011, as well as the edition of a book for the layman on the same subject.

As of now, you may spread the word concerning the birth of the Bryological Foundation Phillipe De Zuttere and we will be at you entire service for all additional information.

Yours sincerely,

C. Cassimans
