The Society for the History of Natural History's summer conference will be on the theme of Women in the History of Natural Sciences, to take place in the Lake District, at the University of Cumbria Ambleside Campus on Thursday 15th June and at the Freshwater Biological Association, at Far Sawrey, on Friday 16th June 2017.
This meeting will focus on the lives, work and stories of less well-known women who have made significant contributions to the life and earth sciences, whether as female virtuosi/ amateurs or as pioneering professionals. Participants can register for both one or two days. http://shnh.org.uk/news/cfp-women-history-natural-science-june-2017/
Workshop for PhD students and early career researchers
Environment Agency, Reading. 27 July 2017
Erosion, transport and deposition of fine sediment (organic and inorganic particles <2mm in diameter) are fundamental processes in the hydrogeomorphic cycle, and river systems require a constant supply in order to function. However, excessive sediment delivery can cause serious deleterious effects to aquatic systems both in suspension and by deposition. This is one of the leading causes for failure to meet Good Ecological Status as set out by the EU Water Framework Directive.
Our new programme of Freshwater Courses for 2017 is now available online and was sent to members with the Winter issue of FBA News.
Our ever popular hands-on courses equip you with the skills and confidence to sample and identify freshwater plants and animals, and provide you with key field and laboratory experience. Tutored by leading experts in freshwater biology and ecology, our courses use a selection of authoritative FBA identification keys.
