ANNOUNCING
The first NATIONAL CONFERENCE on MARINE BIOINVASIONS

CONVENED BY THE MIT SEA GRANT COLLEGE PROGRAM
CALL FOR PAPERS
ABSTRACTS DUE 9/1/98

The first National Conference on Marine Bioinvasions will focus on
biological invasions of exotic species in coastal, estuarine and marine
ecosystems.  An emphasis will be on ballast water research and management,
ecological and genetic consequences of invasions, diversity in time and
space, transport vectors (unintentional and intentional), economic costs and
status of predictive tools for assisting managers.

We are seeing papers in all areas, and will be devoting a special section to
ballast water research including new and proposed approaches for minimizing
releases, e.g. ballast water research, fouling organisms, and intentional
and unintentional aquaculture releases.

Dates:  January 24 - 27, 1999
Location:  Massachusetts Institute of Technology; Cambridge, MA  USA

If you are interested in learning more about the conference or are likely to
