Kindrogan Field Centre, Scotland

Freshwater Algal Course

A freshwater algal course will be conducted at the Kindrogan Field Centre
(operated by the Scottish Field Studies Association) in the scenic Scottish
highlands from the 29 July to 5 August 1999 by Dr. Eileen J. Cox and Dr. L.
Elliot Shubert (Department of Botany, The Natural History Museum, London).
The area around Kindrogan has many different kinds of habitats (streams,
rivers, ponds, lochs and bogs) supporting a diversity of freshwater and
subaerial algal species.  During last year's course, over 300 taxa
representing ten divisions were identified.  The course is designed for
advanced undergraduate students, postgraduate students, biology teachers,
those in a professional capacity who need to further their knowledge in
freshwater algae, and others interested in freshwater ecosystems.
Participants will receive both field and laboratory experience.  The cost of
the course is 360 GBP (approximately 592 USD), which includes accommodation,
meals and tuition.  The nearest mainline railway station is Pitlochry, which
is on the London Kings Cross-Edinburgh-Inverness route.  Participants will
be met at Pitlochry by Kindrogan staff.  Edinburgh is served by an
international airport.

 Stipends are available for student members of the British Phycological
Society and they are encouraged to apply for support of the course fees.
