2015 IAB Meeting


January 11 to 15, 2015
Navarino Island, Chile. 
Cape Horn Biosphere Reserve at the Omora Ethnobotanical Park
The next meeting of the International Association of Bryologists will be held in January 2015 in Southernmost Chile, in the Cape Horn Biosphere Reserve and more specifically on the Island of Navarino.

Preliminary information can be obtained at: This site will of course be updated periodically so visit it regularly; some of the links (e.g., contact person) will be activate soon.

The Cape Horn region has seen significant bryological activity in the last decade, and holds a critical portion of global bryophyte diversity. It will be a wonderful and inspiring place to gather and find out what is happening in the world of bryological research.  

We hope to see as many of you as possible. So mark your calendar for January 2015 (i..e, a year from now!). 

On behalf of the organizing committee.
