Notice of Meeting & AGM



Marine Biodiversity: current research and conservation measures
at
Dunstaffnage Marine Laboratory
19-21 March 1999

The Spring meeting will take place at Oban over the above weekend. Since the Rio Convention on Biodiversity in 1992, there has been a worldwide explosion of activity in this area. In Europe, the EU Habitats Directive has led to the proposed designation of Marine Special Areas of Conservation (mSAC's), while concurrently the UK Biodiversity Action Plan has spawned a series of marine Habitat and Species Action Plans. Research on the underlying causes and maintenance of marine biodiversity, from coastal waters to the deep ocean, is accelerating.
 Contributions on the main theme of the meeting will be particularly welcome, but Porcupine will continue its tradition of allowing more general presentations. Students and non-Porcupines especially welcome.  Please indicate below if you would like to offer!
 a talk, poster, video show etc. There are good spring tides in the week preceding the meeting, and a shore excursion will be organised for Friday if there is sufficient interest.
