Welcome to the website of the Finnish Phytoplankton Society!

The Finnish Phytoplankton Society was founded in 2007. The society organises training courses twice a year. The purpose of the society is:

  • to promote and maintain knowledge of phytoplankton species
  • to develop methods for phytoplankton analysis
  • to develop and maintain cooperation between national and foreign phytoplankton experts.

The membership fee is EUR 20 for full members, EUR 10 for student members and pensioners and EUR 100 for community members. A community member may register three persons who may participate in the Society’s events at the membership fee.
