The Aquatic Plant Management Society (APMS) is inviting student papers for the
upcoming 54th Annual Meeting of the Aquatic Plant Management Society. The
meeting will be held July 13-16, 2014 at the Hilton De Soto in historic Savannah,
Georgia. Oral and poster presentations of original research on the biology or
ecology of aquatic and wetland plants, harmful algal blooms, control methods
(biological, chemical, cultural, mechanical) for invasive exotic or nuisance native
plant species, and restoration projects involving wetland or aquatic plants are
solicited. We had outstanding participation at the 2013 San Antonio Meeting
with nine student presenters from five different Universities meeting, but we
want to surpass those numbers at this year’s meeting!
The APMS has a strong ethic of student support. The society will provide all
student presenters room accommodations and complimentary registration.
First, 2nd, and 3rd place prize money will be awarded in separate contests for
both oral and poster presentations. In addition, all students are invited to
attend a hands-on tour of local aquatic plant management sites. In addition,
this meeting presents an opportunity for students to develop their presentation
skills, learn about the field of aquatic plant management, and network with key
Government, University, Industry representatives and peers with similar
educational and professional interests.
Students may register and submit an abstract by following the instructions under the “annual meeting” link. The submission deadline for Title and Abstract is April 20, 2014.
