*Announcing the 10th International Seagrass Biology Workshop*
Apologies for cross posting.
The State University of Rio de Janeiro and the Institute for Brazilian
Marine Biodiversity will be hosting the Tenth International Seagrass
Biology Workshop from 25-30 November 2012 at the Pontal da Ferradura
Convention Centre in Búzios, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
With the emphasis on providing an agreeable and comfortable environment to
talk serious seagrass science the workshop will be organized into:
Plenary lectures from invited speakers
Oral and poster presentations addressing specific topics within major themes
Half-day study groups, which will consist of multi-disciplinary team
activities focused on cutting-edge global and regional issues in seagrass
research, methods, conservation, reviews and habitat health
Fieldtrip to local seagrass habitats
Organizers will invite a select group of speakers and devise creative ways
to facilitate discussion. During interactive themed sessions and study
groups we will encourage participants to go beyond one-way communication.
The Workshop will open on 25th November with an evening reception at the
Pontal da Ferradura Convention Centre in Búzios. The event will close on
the evening of 29th November with a final reception.
The International Seagrass Biology Workshops have been held since 1993 when
the first meeting took place in Kominato, Japan. The International Seagrass
Biology Workshop (ISBW) is an official activity of the World Seagrass
Don’t miss the opportunity to be a part of the next International Seagrass
