Annual ABLS Meeting

Asilomar, CA, USA, 13–19 July, 2008



The American Bryological and Lichenological Society (ABLS) will be meeting jointly with the

Intenational Association for Lichenology (IAL 6) at the Asilomar Conference Center. Thus, a partially

integrated program is planned.

Registration at the meetings

Registration packets for the meeting will be available from 1 p.m. to 6 p.m. in Phoebe A. Hurst Social Hall (ca. third building in from the entrance), where you will also pick up your room keys at the Front Desk. Thereafter registration will be moved to the back of Merrill Hall, our main meeting room.

Anticipated program

Overall the meeting will include a potpourri session for new ideas, 19 symposia (listed below), 3 poster sessions, 3 special lectures, 3 discussion sections, a lichenicolous fungal workshop, and two field trips. A two day Parmeliaceae workshop will be held following the meeting. Bryologists and lichenologists will meet jointly for most of the time, but the bryologists will meet separately one day, during which two additional symposia and a Grimmia and Coscinodon workshop will be held.

Potpourri session for new ideas (write tom.nash@asu.edu to schedule a slot)

The intent is to stimulate subsequent participant discussions and potentially to lead to new research (not to present completed research). Each presenter will be limited to one or two power point slides and limited to 5 minutes or less. The premium is on being concise. Untested ideas are welcome.


The following symposia topics have been chosen by the program committee. The conveners are still actively arranging for speakers. Therefore, if you have a presentation that might fit one of the symposia, you are encouraged to contact one of the conveners (sooner rather than later).

–  –  –

ABLS bryological symposium topic Conveners Field Bryology in the West: the New Explorers J. Shevock and D.. Wagner Bryo-Genomics: Physcomitrella and beyond. S. Schuette Poster Sessions – Poster submissions are strongly encouraged, as three sessions of poster presentations are scheduled for the meeting. Sessions will be held early afternoon on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. Provisionally, general topics for poster presentations are given below together with discussion leaders. Adjustments will be made depending on the range of topics submitted, and additions may well be made. Poster session leaders will lead the discussion of their posters.

–  –  –

Maximal dimensions of usable space on the poster boards will be 7’9’ x 3’9” (ca. 230 x 110 cm), with the long dimension being the width. The boards are made of cork board and pins will be provided. Use a font size of 20 or more.

Abstracts for Oral and Poster Presentations Oral presentations for the contributed paper sessions will be no longer than 15 minutes in length, include reserving the last 2–3 minutes for questions. Posters should measure up to 95 cm wide and up to 120 cm vertical to fit onto bulletin boards. An


must be submitted for each contributed paper or poster presentation. These will be gathered into a booklet that will be distributed to all meeting registrants at the beginning of the meeting in Asilomar. The deadline for abstract submission is May 15th, 2008.

Abstracts are to be submitted electronically, preferably by e-mail attachment, or secondarily, on a computer disk (either CD or floppy disk is acceptable). Files should be submitted as editable MS-word files (*.doc) or MS-rtf files (*.rtf), but in either case with a minimum of special formatting codes and no indenting. Use a common serif font like Times New Roman in 10 pt font size. Brief abstracts are encouraged, but the maximum length will be 150 words (ca. 10 lines, single space, in 10 pt font).

Abstracts may be subject to re-formatting but only to minimal editing, so please send perfect, error-free copy files. Authors’ names should be in all caps, and the presenting author should be clearly indicated

with an asterisk in front of their surname. For further format information, an example is given below:

Send your abstract with cover letter to: tom.nash@asu.edu Discussion sections: Discussions will likely include brief overviews by the discussion leader(s) and moderators but will be open for comment by any participant at the meeting. We anticipate the following

discussion sections:

Peterson – eric@theothersideofthenet.com).

Effects of Global Climate Change on Lichens and Bryophytes (M. Lakatos – lakatos@rhrk.uni-kl.de;

and D. Vitt – dvitt@plant.siu.edu).

Lichenicolous fungal workshop: Lichenicolous fungal clinic with keys, bring your own specimens (workshop leader: D. Hawksworth, Natural History Museum, U.K. – d.hawksworth@nhm.ac.uk) Grimmia and Coscinodon workshop: On the day that the bryologists meet separately, they will also hold an identification workshop led by R. Hastings, who has new keys for these two difficult genera – roxanne.hastings@gov.ab.ca Special lecture speakers: R. Honegger (Zürich, Switzerland), F. Lutzoni (Durham, NC, USA), T.G.A.

Green (Hamilton, New Zealand) – 45 min. each – titles to be announced.

Field Trips: two lichenological trips are planned prior to the meeting (bryological trips will be announced through the ABLS web site) (1) Point Reyes National Park and adjacent coastal areas (L. St. Clair and L. Glacy, leaders) (2) Corvallis, OR (or Seattle, WA) to Asilomar (B. McCune and K. Glew, leaders) (1) Central, coastal California (Point Reyes) – 3.5 days collecting, pre-congress, jointly led by Larry St.
