The topics and titles of oral presentations can be reported to Kristiina Vuorio.

We hope that other oral presentations will be related to phytoplanktonsystematics, species, phytoplankton analysis or microscope function, etc. related to the club's activities. Length of presentations approx. 10-20 minutes. Note. The programme allocates time for microscoption of phytoplankton and the harmonisation of species assays.
