It gives us great pleasure to welcome all of you to the online conference Bryophytes, lichens, and northern ecosystems in a changing world (July 6-9, 2021). The Québec B(ryophytes) and L(ichens) (BL2021) will bring together some of the most prestigious bryological and lichenological societies: the International Association of Bryology (IAB), the American Bryological and Lichenological Society (ABLS), the Canadian Botanical Association (CBA-ABC) and the Société québécoise de bryologie (SQB).
The conference will consist of a four-day scientific program, and speakers are invited to submit papers on all aspects of bryology, lichenology and northern ecosystems. We will address diverse topics including climate change, genomics of model organisms, conservation, biogeography, ecology, genetics, phylogenetics and physiology together with newer areas like epigenomics, environmental DNA studies and cryptogamic polar biology.
Call for symposia and workshops: We seek proposals for symposia and workshops for each of the participating societies-associations. Click here for more information.

On behalf of the organizing committee, we are looking forward to welcoming you to the virtual meeting in July 2021!
