Aquatechnex biologists will be attending the 49th annual Aquatic Plant Management Society Meeting in Milwaukee, WI from July 12th through the 15th. This is the professional scientific society of those that work in this field. It always provides a wealth of knowledge, the papers cover a range of topics and new research that can be deployed to the benefit of our clients. Information on this meeting can be accessed at www.apms.org and the program can be viewed at http://www.apms.org/2009/preliminaryprogram.pdf
There are a significant number of student papers this year, it’s good to see our universities have students focused in our field. We will be contributing to the scholarship fund through donations to the silent auction. That fund has provided opportunities for students to work in this field and is an important part of keeping a growing supply of new talent working in this important area.
