I would like to invite you to 24th International Diatom Symposium (IDS 2016) which will be held from 21-26 August 2016 on the campus of Université Laval, Québec City, Canada!
The organizers of IDS2016 hope to bring together interdisciplinary participation from experts from all fields of research on modern and fossil diatoms (both from marine and freshwater systems), including molecular, physiological, evolutionary, ecological,
biogeographic, paleoecological, biomonitoring, systematic/ taxonomic, forensic and other aspects of research on diatoms. Special session «Diatoms in the paleosciences» plan to introduce other topics of interest to non-specialists in diatoms. One of the topics
that might be of interest to some is using oxygen stable isotope compositions from biogenic silica for paleoclimatological reconstructions.
We are looking forward to welcoming you to Québec City in August!
