The Eighteenth Seed Biology Meeting will be held at Long Ashton Research
Station, Bristol, UK on 15 April 1997. I thought some of you might like to know
If you would like to attend please fill in and return the enclosed
registration form and payment by 28 February 1997.
We would be very pleased to hear from you if you would like to present a paper
at the meeting. Papers on any aspect of seed ecology/biology will be eligible
for inclusion. If there are sufficient suitable papers it is intended to divide
the meeting into two main areas.
i. Ecological aspects, ii. Physiological/Molecular Biology/Biochemical aspects,
contributions in these two main subject areas would be particularly welcome.
Authors of papers will be asked to provide a one page (A4) camera ready,
summary of their presentation by 31 March 1997 which will be bound into a
booklet for distribution to delegates.
Posters on seed ecology/biology can also be accepted and arrangements have been
made to accommodate these (display boards measure 0.75 m wide by 1.2 m deep).
However, viewing times will necessarily be rather limited and therefore paper
presentations are preferred.
Following the talks, there will be a choice of either a tour of the weed seed
germination and seed from soil extraction facilities or a tour of the LIFE
experiment (Less Intensive Farming for the Environment System) at Long Ashton.
We do hope you can attend the meeting and the pre-meeting dinner the night
before, which in the past has proved to be a very popular venue to discuss seed
