The Scottish Freshwater Group (SFG) is a forum for members to exchange information across disciplines and to promote awareness of current issues and research related to the freshwater environment in Scotland. Membership is open to anybody with an interest in freshwater ecosystems. Currently there are ~ 350 members from universities, research institutes, government and non-government agencies, industry and interested members of the public. There is no subscription fee.
The SFG holds a meeting twice yearly in April and October. Meetings usually consist of seven or eight talks and a lunchtime poster display. In particular the meetings offer a forum for postgraduate students to present their work. Please see the links below for presentations from previous meetings. If you wish to receive agendas for future SFG meetings, or give a talk or poster, please email Dr Pauline Lang or contact us on Facebook or Twitter.
Unless stated otherwise, meetings are held at the University of Stirling, hosted by Colin Bull of the School of Biological and Environmental Sciences. Talks are usually in Lecture Theatre 2V1 and poster displays in adjacent room 2V2, both in the Cottrell Building. Lunch can be obtained in Haldane's Eatery or takeaway outlets in the Atrium. There is normally no fee and no need to pre-register: just turn up and follow the signs for the meeting in the Cottrell Building. See a campus map.
