We are pleased to announce the dates for the upcoming international river restoration conference “Restoring floodplains, habitats and connectivity using mussels and brains” in Lund, Sweden, on 28–30 September, 2016.

Conference objectives are to highlight experiences and results gained from a wide range of river restoration projects focusing on rehabilitation of species of freshwater mussels and fish. Mussels and fish are often used as indicators and flagship species while restoring rivers. But are they any good? If so – why?

The first two days will focus on presentations by invited experts and conference participants who want to present their work. The third day includes field visits to Fyleån Creek, Klingavälsån River, both sites re-meandered, and the Hemmestorp Mölla rearing facility.

Call for abstracts, oral or poster presentations, information about registration, fees etc will be available in July.

We look forward to seeing you in Lund!

UC4LIFE doing Austria

The UC4LIFE-project was presented at Kefermarkt, Linz, Austria (12/11/2013). A nice joint venture between the thick shelled river mussel and freshwater pearl mussel one might say. Common problems, indifferences and similarities between the species were discussed. We still have a lot to learn about both species, although we are catching up thanks to stringent research throughout Europe.
