What is OzBryo 2019 all about?

It's a meeting for bryophyte researchers

OzBryo will bring together researchers from Australia, New Zealand and further afield that work on bryophytes. The meeting will be a platform for early career researchers to share their research with others and will have a number of workshop sessions to provide participants with a foundation for the deeper study of bryophytes and will feature special symposiums from national and international speakers.
