Eighth Deep-Sea Marine Biology Symposium
Monterey, California, USA, 22 September - 27 September, 1997

The 8th DSBS has been moved to Monterey, California from Galway, Ireland.  
It will be co-hosted by the Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute
(MBARI) and the Monterey Bay Aquarium (MBA) and is tentatively scheduled
for September 22-27.  Full details and applications can be found in the
latest issue of the Deep-Sea Newsletter (see previous posting to
bionet.biology.deepsea).  Information is also available on the

MBARI's WWW: http://www.mbari.org/Info_Announce/DSBS/
EMAIL: goan at mbari.org


The format for the DSBS will be similar to earlier meetings, including
both oral and poster presentations concerning deep-sea organisms and
ecosystems. We invite papers on any related topic, and are particularly
interested in presentations relating to processes influencing the function
and organization of deep-sea communities or populations. Themes of
interest include, but are not limited to: 

     Diversity, Adaptation, and Evolution of Deep-Sea Biota 
     Pattern and Function of Deep-Sea Populations and Communities 
     Source and Utilization of Carbon Inputs in Deep-Sea Systems 
     Metabolic or Physiological Studies of Deep-Sea Biota 
     Microbial Processes in Deep-Sea Habitats 
     Deep-Sea Pelagic Community Studies 
     Sedimentation and Diagenesis in Deep Ocean Habitats 
     Reproduction in the Deep-Sea 
     Interdisciplinary Studies in Deep Ocean Settings (JGOFS, ...) 
     Studies of Specialized Habitats (Seeps, Vents, Oxygen Min. Zone)
