Upcoming Workshop: From the Labs to the Reefs

Assessing Heterotrophy in Marine Animal Forests and its importance in guiding conservation strategy

We invite you to assist in the upcoming ONLINE WORKSHOP on Marine Animal Forests (MAFs), that will be held on the 26 & 27 of October

The Workshop will be divided into 3 sessions structured around either heterotrophic or mixotrophic metazoans. This workshop will provide an opportunity to share current knowledge and highlight existing gaps and future directions regarding heterotrophy’s importance to MAFs. During the workshop, we will summarize recent progress and identify research priorities.
