Provisional Program

 

The Larval Biology Meetings started in 1993 as a biennial forum for work on the ecology and evolutionary biology of larval stages (or propagules) of all aquatic animals. The first meeting was held by the State University of New York, Stony Brook (USA). The second one was in 1995 at Harbor Branch Oceanographic Institution in Florida (USA). The third meeting was held in Melbourne, Australia in 1998. The fourth one was in 2000 in Santa Cruz (USA) at the University of California, Santa Cruz.

The 2002 meeting will be hosted by the University of Vigo, Vigo, Galicia, Spain. Vigo is a fishing town of about 300.000 people on the atlantic coast of Spain, 30 km from Portugal border. The town is located at the Ría de Vigo, a long fjord with beautiful sandy beaches and rocky shores, protected from the Atlantic storms by three islands, Illas Cíes, that conform the Illas do Atlántico National Park, a superb diving and bird-watching site.

 

 

The Meeting will be held at Theatre García Barbón (Policarpo Sainz Street), a modern old theatre downtown, 5-10 minutes walking from meeting hotels and very close to restaurants, bars, cafés, shops, harbour and marina.

Deadline March 1

We will try not to hold two parallel sessions. After experience of the last meetings we concluded that all larval biologist are interested in all topics and sometimes is very hard to choose between two session.

We ask your collaboration on that purpose. So, we encourage everybody to present just one talk. If you have more results you want to show us and discuss, you can present a poster.

For information on specific symposium, please contact the organisers of the symposium of interest.

Abstracts should be sent as attachment by e-mail to the organiser of the symposium where you want to present it.

Do not forget to indicate if the contribution will be presented as a poster or as an oral communication.

Please, follow the instructions. It will save us a lot of work!

AUTHOR´S NAME should be written in ARIAL, size 11, CAPITAL LETTER;

Address should be written in Arial, size 9, Normal letter

TITLE should be written in ARIAL, size 11, CAPITAL LETTER;

Abstract should be written in Arial, size 9, normal letter;

Length of the abstract should not be over 300 words.

Please, use italics for species scientific name only. Do not indent paragraphs.
