15th Larwood Bryozoological Conference

6th – 8th June 2018

Amgueddfa Cymru - National Museum Wales, Cardiff

The 15th Larwood meeting will be held in June this year in Wales. It will be hosted by Amgueddfa Cymru - National Museum Wales at National Museum Cardiff, located in the centre of Cardiff. All bryozoologists are welcome and we have prizes for the best student talk and poster.

During the meeting there will be time to look around the museum's exhibitions which include natural science and a world class art collection. There will be the opportunity to take a guided tour behind the scenes of the Marine, Palaeontology, Mollusca and Mineralogy collections. If there is interest we can also get out one of our 1815 William Smith maps, widely regarded as the first true geological map of any country.
