this theme, together with symposia on other ecologicaltopics. Suggestions for symposium titles are requested. Inaddition, prominence will be given to poster sessionsassociated with symposia.
During the Congress, excursions will be made to sites ofecological interest within approximately two hours driveof Manchester. These will include the following NationalParks: The Peak District, The Lake District and Snowdonia. It is hoped that during these excursions, ecological workbeing undertaken by Universities, Polytechnics, Industry,the Institute of Freshwater Ecology, the Institute ofTerrestrial Ecology, English Nature, the CountrysideCouncil for Wales, and the Royal Societyfor the Protectionof Birds will be demonstrated.
AccomodationThe University halls of residence will be available, and it isenvisaged that many participants will want to use this formof accomodation. The more expansive option of hotelaccomodation will be available also.
