2010 Taxonomy Fair

Tuesday, 8 June 2010, Time: 17:00 – 19:30
La Fonda Hotel – Santa Fe Room

The NABS Technical Issues Committee has scheduled the 12th annual taxonomy fair for the joint NABS/ASLO conference in Santa Fe. Experts will provide their time to help visitors with difficult specimen identifications and confirmations for reference collections. In addition, we expect that a local aquatic specialist from the Santa Fe area will be present for this taxonomy fair to serve as a regional generalist. Microscopes for this event will once again be provided by Martin Microscopes.

Start gathering your specimens together for this event now. Remember that you can bring specimens in alcohol on an airplane if you follow the rules and regulations. Please check with your local airport for details as they might change, but in general have specimens in vials with less that 15 ml of EtOH in clear Ziploc® bags.
