Lapland

Post-Symposium: Western Finnish Lapland 5. 8. – 9. 8. Beginning right after the congress.  The excursion will be arranged at the Pallas-Yllästunturi National Park. We will also visit the Arctic Centre, for instance. First we will explore the lichen communities, including many calicioid and fruticose species, in old-growth forests located on the foothills of the fells. Then the expedition will be directed towards the rich lichen flora of the alpine-oroarctic zones where the genus Rhizocarpon is most prominent with its yellow saxicolous species. Furthermore, we will visit beautiful brooks and great gorges. See Programme, General info, and Flights. THE EXCURSION IS FULL AND WILL BE ORGANIZED
