Algal growth and biodiversity in the Okavango Delta

Luca Marazzi presents his doctoral research at Florida conference

Algal growth and biodiversity in the Okavango Delta

Luca Marazzi presented his doctoral research at the 9th INTECOL International Wetlands Conference, held from 3 to 8 June 2012 in Orlando, Florida, USA.

Organised by the International Association for Ecology (INTECOL) Wetlands Working Group, the event, billed as ”the largest wetlands conference in the world”, was attended by 1,225 leading scientists, practitioners, policy-makers and students from 43 countries. There were 607 oral and 380 poster presentations on wetlands science, management and conservation.

Luca’s poster, What drives growth and biodiversity of algae in the Okavango Delta? illustrated his findings on the distribution of the 600 species of algae sustaining the food webs of this subtropical wetland of global importance.

The 11th INTECOL Congress, Ecology: Into the next 100 years, will be hosted at London’s ExCel Centre in August 2013 by the British Ecological Society as part of its centenary celebrations.
