ISTH Meeting 2003:

Dear Colleagues!

We are very pleased to inform you that the next open Meeting of our Subcomission will take place on Black Sea during the

22-27 SEPTEMBER 2003

Scientific program of the one day ISTH meeting will include presentations of ISTH member who is interested to do so. Moreover most significant recent achievements in the field of Trichoderma/Hypocrea taxonomy and phylogeny will be discussed in the light of the selection of the most accurate tool for the reliable molecular identification of these fungi. (See minutes of the last ISTH meeting). Traditional information exchange, proposing of new members and several administrative issues will end up the meeting.

Imagining that Crimea and Ukraine might sound uncertain and unfamiliar for most of you ISTH secretary Irina Druzhinina - native Russian speaker originated from Moscow, Russia - is always ready to answer your questions as well as assist you in the course of the meeting (if needed).

We are looking forward to meet you in Crimea this year!
