This event will introduce participants to some of the diversity of microscopic plant life in freshwaters, including an illustrated lecture, sampling nearby ponds and streams in Bushy Park for algae and then learning how to observe and identify them under the microscope. Eileen Cox is Head of Postgraduate Studies at the Natural History Museum. Her research covers the diatom structure, development, ecology and taxonomy, but she also teaches general algal identification courses. Elliot Shubert is Editor of Systematics and Biodiversity at the Natural History Museum. His research interests include freshwater green algae and cyanobacteria, and he also teaches freshwater algal identification.
