Dear Colleagues, 
This message is a reminder that the deadline to apply to the Tropical Field Phycology course to be hosted at the Bocas Research Station of the Smithsonian Tropical Research Institute in Panama is this Friday, 29 February 2008. The course will be appropriate for advanced undergraduates and graduate students interested in getting field experience in a tropical setting. The Bocas Research Station is an excellent platform for  leading field research, and there will be ample opportunities for students to collect specimens for their own research. Deadline for course applications is 29 February 2008, the same deadline for funding to participate in field courses sponsored by various phycological societies. Details (including a course description, application materials and links to funding sources) can be found at:
