Limnoseminar: putting limnology on-line

(The following is an excerpt from our most recent issue of "The Current"; download now to read the full newsletter!)

The SCL is hosting a series of monthly online live broadcasts to share research in the field of Limnology. The format is open and freely accessible to all, with all seminars archived on YouTube and linked to on the SCL web page. Content is welcome in both french and english. The series is organized and hosted by Alexandre Poulain (@RedoxRoxDetox, @Limnoseminar).

We are encouraging all scientists to share their latest research in the field of aquatic sciences; students, early career or more senior scientists, all levels of academia are welcome. It is a great opportunity to showcase your research.
