SCAR 2014 Rap-up

Written by

This years SCAR conference proved to be a resounding success (even with a horrid cold trying to infect us all!). The following talks were all completed without a hitch and with many interesting questions from the attending audiences.

  • Dianna King: Antarctic moss beds exhibit dynamic changes over a decade of observation
  • Melinda Waterman: Photosynthetic and photoprotective pigments in Antarctic mosses: associations with ozone depletion
  • Sharon Robinson: Monitoring temporal and spatial change in Antarctic terrestrial communities
  • Myself (Rhys): Cryptic speciation in East Antarctic mosses

Evenings were filled with networking and intense sessions of marking student assignments and many business cards later the SCAR conference was over. With one free day to spare, we made our way to the Middle-earth village of Hobbiton for a final day of merriment.

Many thanks to the lab for listening to my ramblings and as always moss moss moss
