Field Techniques for Environmental Physiology
to be held in Almeria, Spain, 30th March - 5th April, 1998

are now available through the updated PEPG Web pages:

http://www.essex.ac.uk/bcs/pepg/pepghome.html.

In early january a further update will provide photos and an online
"registration of interest form".

Booking forms are ready to be sent out to all those who register interest
with us. Please note numbers are limited, so early booking is advisable.

**Plant Environmental Physiology Group=20

**4th International Workshop on Field Techniques for Environmental=
 Physiology
Almer=EDa, Spain, 30th March to 5th April 1998
3rd Announcement

**Outline
The workshop aims to introduce newer scientists to a range of plant
ecophysiological techniques for field measurements. The workshop will
emphasise training and include presentations from experienced practitioners,
equipment demonstrations and opportunities for hands-on work with
instruments. Participants are encouraged to bring their own equipment and
contribute to demonstrations and the sharing of experience. The practical
application of techniques will be illustrated through a field trip to see
on-going plant ecophysiological research in the area around Almer=EDa, one=
 of
the driest regions in Europe. Numbers will be restricted to allow easy
communication between all participants.
Please look at the PEPG Web pages via
http://www.essex.ac.uk/bcs/pepghome.html for the latest information,
including photos and registration forms.

** Accommodation and transport
All participants will be accommodated in Hotel Playa Capricho, a 4* tourist
hotel, located in Roquetas de Mar, about 20 km from Almer=EDa. The hotel
offers comfortable rooms in a beach-side location. The cost of airport
transfers,  lunch, coffee breaks and the workshop dinner will be included in
the workshop registration fee. Evening meals (except the workshop dinner)
are not included, as participants are expected to dine informally in the
many restaurants close to the hotel.
[please turn over
 Although Almer=EDa has an international airport, it mostly handles holiday
charters in the summer season. Malaga is used by a wider range of airlines
and carries a much larger volume of flights, therefore providing cheaper and
more flexible travel options. We will provide coaches to transfer
participants from Malaga airport to the workshop hotel. There will be
coaches on Monday 30th  March to meet inbound flights, and on Sunday 5th
April for outbound travel. The cost of the coaches will be included in the
workshop registration fee. Transfers at other times or to other airports
must be arranged by participants themselves.

**Equipment demonstrations
Equipment demonstrations and "hands-on" practical sessions will be held in
the garden of the hotel, which contains a wide range of trees, shrubs,
perennial and bedding plants. The demonstrations will be given by equipment
manufacturers, speakers and participants, and will be pre-scheduled before
the workshop. If you are interested in giving a demonstration, please
indicate this when registering, and give the amount of time required
(maximum 45 minutes).

**Field trip
There will be a full-day's coach trip to two field sites operated by EEZA,
to see their current field-based research and the typical vegetation of the
region. Two places of particular interest are (1) the highly-eroded
"badlands" in the Desierto de Tabernas. A site in this area is used by EEZA
for field studies of the interaction between climate change and
desertification processes (2)  the Rambla Honda valley, with abandoned
farms, where EEZA are undertaking long-term studies of vegetation dynamics,
hydrology and erosion at this site

**Booklets for participants
All participants will receive a booklet containing summaries of the talks
given at the workshop. In addition, they will receive a copy of the
"Environmental Perspectives 1996/7" compendium issue of the Journal of
Experimental Botany containing all articles produced by the Third
International Workshop on Field Techniques for Ecophysiology (Rapolano,
Italy, September 1995) and previously published in the Journal between
September 1996 and May 1997.

**Organisation
The workshop is organised on behalf of the Plant Environmental Physiology
Group of the Society for Experimental Biology and the British Ecological
Society. Local support is being provided by the Estaci=F3n Experimental de
Zonas =C1ridas (EEZA), located in Almer=EDa. The organisers are James=
 Morison
(University of Essex, United Kingdom), Simon Allen, (University of
Edinburgh, UK) and Francisco
Domingo (EEZA, Spain).

**Workshop Costs
The accommodation cost (bed and breakfast) will be approximately =A328 per
person per night shared double room, and =A336 for a single room. The full
workshop  registration fee will be =A3270,  reduced to =A3220 for full SEB=
 or
BES members, =A3180 for bona-fide students (a letter from the institute will
be necessary) and =A3140 for current student members of the SEB or BES. As
explained above this fee covers cost of airport transfers via Malaga,
lunch, coffee breaks,  workshop dinner, booklet, field excursion costs.

**Register for a  booking form
To receive the booking form please use the on-line Registration Form via the
PEPG Web page: http://www.essex.ac.uk/bcs/pepghome.html or please send your
