WG meeting 2005 in Poznan, Poland

At our last meeting in 2004, held at Rothamsted Research, Harpenden, UK, we decided to meet next in Poznan, Poland, in 2005, to take advantage of the possibility of support provided by the EU project PAGEN. Thanks to all who helped the meeting to run so smoothly and in particular, Malgorzata ´Gosia´ Jedryczka, for co-ordinating the local arrangements so carefully. These included an interesting and fun excursion to the Malyszyn plant breeding station of Plant Breeding Strzelce and the bat reserve Nietoperek (Miedzyrzecki Wal Umocniony, Grupa Warowna Scharnhorst).

This meeting was the biggest so far in the history of our Working Group, with 77 participants from a total of 11 countries, giving a total of 42 oral presentations and 25 posters.

This was the first meeting convened by both the new convenors (Birger is now fully recovered from an achilles tendon rupture, which prevented his attendance at the 2004 meeting!). We gratefully acknowledge the support of the previous convenors, Volker Paul and Ingrid Williams, given to us both prior to and during this meeting. We dedicate this volume to them with gratitude for all they have done for our Working Group. We hope to see you all at CETIOM in France for the next meeting, and thank Xavier Pinochet for taking on the responsibility for local arrangements.

Á bientot!

Sam Cook and Birger Koopmann
