The Aquatic Plant Management Society, Inc. is an international organization of scientists, educators, students, commercial pesticide applicators, administrators, and concerned individuals interested in the management and study of aquatic plants.
Slots for oral and poster presentations are filling up quickly, so please submit your title and abstract as soon as possible. Oral and poster presentations are solicited for original research on the biology or ecology of aquatic and wetland plants and algae, control methods (biological, chemical, cultural, mechanical) for invasive, exotic or nuisance plant or algal species, and restoration projects involving wetland or aquatic plants and algae. Presentation of original research will be given preference and should be indicated by including results in the abstract.
This year’s meeting will feature a special session discussing the status of Harmful Algal Blooms (HABs) and the outlook for future monitoring and management needs. Invited speakers and submitted talks will drive discussions of regional and national impacts of harmful algal blooms, needs for short- and long-term control strategies, and defining the society’s role in achieving meaningful results.
Oral presentations may include original research on the biology or ecology of harmful algae, control of HABs, and other similar topics. Abstracts submitted for the special session should be indicated during the abstract submission process.
