Warm welcome to the website of BPS 2017 the 65th Annual meeting of the British Phycological Society. This meeting marks a return to the Winter programme and will be hosted by the School of Ocean Sciences at Bangor University. Based in the town of Menai Bridge since the 1950's, the School has a long history of marine research, including various elements of phycological science.
