Permanent Committee of the International Conferences on Ephemeroptera
The forthcoming Joint meeting of the International Conferences on Ephemeroptera and International Symposia on Plecoptera will be held from 31st May to 5th June 2015 in Aberdeen, Scotland’s third largest city, which is located on the stunning north east coast between the Rivers Don and Dee. The city has striking granite architecture, an inspiring history, strong industrial heritage, a vibrant population and a thriving art scene. The county of Aberdeenshire has stunning scenery, including Scotland’s largest national park – the Cairngorms National Park.
The city has excellent facilities for the Joint Meeting with the Dee and Don catchments and surrounding habitats providing outstanding opportunities for fieldwork. North east Scotland supports a high proportion of the UK Ephemeroptera and Plecoptera fauna, including Brachyptera putata – an endemic species with government conservation status.
The conference will be hosted at the James Hutton Institute, one of the biggest research centres in the UK and the first of its type in Europe. The scientific programme will be delivered in the Institute’s Macaulay suite and mid-conference and post-conference field trip are being organized for participants to experience the wildlife, habitats, scenery and culture of North east Scotland.
