Seahorses and Pipefish in the North Sea - 12 February ZSL Scientific Meeting

I wanted to let the "Seahorses and Pipefish community" know about ZSL's (Zoological Society of London) forthcoming meeting on SEAHORSES AND PIPEFISH IN THE NORTH SEA which I thought may be of interest. This will be held on TUESDAY 12 FEBRUARY 2008.

The following talks will be presented:
Mass occurrence of snake pipefish in the Northeast Atlantic: result of a change in climate? - Cindy J. G. van Damme, Wageningen IMARES, IJmuiden, The Netherlands;
Snake pipefish as food for seabirds: famine or feast? - Professor Sarah Wanless, Centre for Ecology and Hydrology, Edinburgh, UK; and
British seahorses; fact or fiction - Neil Garrick-Maidment, Executive Director, The Seahorse Trust, UK.

Scientific Meetings start at 6pm and close at 7.30pm. The talks are held in the ZSL Meeting Rooms (a map showing their location can be found at,109,AR.html and some general directions to ZSL London Zoo can be found at,125,AR.html.

Full details can be found at,231,EV.html or please feel free to get in touch with me if you have any queries.

ZSL Scientific Meetings are free and open to everyone - no need to book in advance unless you are staying for the dinner. There will be a dinner with the speakers following this meeting and a booking form can be downloaded from the above URL.
