Education and Outreach

Making its way out from a mass of Caulerpa trifaria, this young specimen of Carpoglossum confluens already shows epiphytic macroalgae (Luis Henriquez)

The Algal Outreach Committee focusses on engaging the public on phycological matters. We run an photographic annual competition designed to highlight the best imagery pertaining to the various fields of phycology.

This award was established by the British Phycological Society in recognition of Hilda Canter-Lund, whose stunning photographs will be known to many members.  Her photomicrographs of freshwater algae combined high technical and aesthetic qualities whilst still capturing the quintessence of the organisms she was studying.

Please see the Hilda Canter-Lund pages for more information, and to see the stunning imagery from previous entrants.
