19/11/2019 au 27/12/2019 - BPS Session on Algae as Environmental Indicators
At its next annual meeting in Plymouth, England, from 6th to 9th January 2020 the British Phycological Society will have a special session on Algae as Environmental Indicators. We invite contributions for this special session. The deadline for offers is 25 November.
Details of the meeting are on the conference website:
We would like this special session to take a very broad approach. Algae have been used as pollution indicators for a long time but EC Directives of the last two decades have broadened their use to the much wider ecological and environmental quality assessment of habitats. These Directives include Water Framework Directive (WFD) and Marine Strategy Framework Directive (MSFD) and utilise both planktonic and benthic forms, marine and freshwater. A challenge in developing suitable tools has been the lack of algal taxonomic education in recent years leading to attempts to find new approaches to simplify assessments. Recent molecular advances suggest that in some cases eDNA may be used as an aid to simplify survey work. Algae have also been used in the linking of ecological status to nutrient criteria. Climate change can result in species distribution changes both as loss of species and introduction of alien species. We can use impending changes in species as indicators of potential ecosystem damage from loss of key species and introduction of harmful ones.
We invite submissions of papers on both marine and freshwater algae, microscopic and macroscopic, looking at recent indicator tool development but also papers looking to the future indicator uses of algae and to applicability of new molecular techniques. We hope to have some presentations by consultants and agency staff but also welcome academic contributions including Ph.D. students and early career scientists.

10/02/2020 au 31/05/2020 - DNAQUA International Conference (Evian, 16-18 Sept. 2020)
16-18 September 2020 –Evian (France) - First international conference on the use of DNA for water biomonitoring
« Pressures on aquatic ecosystems are increasing due to population growth and climate change. National and international legal frameworks have put the focus on this problem. Therefore, there is a need to systematically assess and monitor the quality of aquatic ecosystems. With more than 400 participants from 49 countries, DNAqua-Net COST action explores since2017 the potential of novel DNA- based techniques and provides good practice solutions for an application in such biomonitoring programme ».
