We are pleased to invite you to the 4th edition of the International Symposium on Advances in Marine Mussel Research (AMMR2022), from 21st-23rd November. Following on from the great success of AMMR2016 in Vigo (Spain), AMMR2017 in Sete (France) and AMMR2019 in Chioggia (Italy), this multidisciplinary, international meeting will take place in a glorious setting at the heart of the UNESCO North Devon Biosphere, overlooking the North Atlantic. Whilst we know this isn't the summer meeting in beautiful Gdansk that many of us in the AMMR community might have been expecting, I really hope this meeting offers a worthy substitute here in the UK, until we can return to Poland for the next edition.
AMMR2022 offers a 2.5 day meeting that will celebrate the latest in marine mussel (Mytilus sp.) research. We want this to be a truly interdisciplinary, cosmopolitan meeting, spanning sub-cellular and molecular to whole ecosystem function, encompassing fundamental blue-skies to entirely commercial research, stretching from the sub-littoral to the high inter-tidal. Just like the spread of these incredible bivalves, we would also love to welcome researchers from across the globe. Previous iterations of AMMR have covered incredible research on evolutionary biology, ecology, ecotoxicology and climate change, as well as the role of mussels within aquaculture.
