26th June - 1st
We are now inviting oral and poster presentations for the symposium. In addition to open sessions on all aspects of temperate reefs, the following provisional themes are being considered: propagules to production, biodiversity and ecosystem functioning, management and conservation, artificial structures, contribution of reef research to general ecological theory, coldwater coral reefs, deep-sea reefs, macro-ecology and modelling, phylogeography and biogeography. Subject to demand workshops will be organised on the afternoon of 29th June focussing on current methodological and conservation challenges. Other suggestions are welcomed.
