We are attempting to make abstracts from as many as possible of the biannual meetings of the “Society” for the study of Free-Living Amoebae (FLAM) available to all. The abstracts were usually never formally published in a journal. Most proceedings were only available as a booklet provided to the attendees. We believe that the information from these meetings can be a valuable source of information for researchers on FLAM, even though the material must be viewed as non-refereed.
Several previous organizers were very supportive of the idea of bringing these abstracts together in a form that would be available to all. Thanks go to Jacob Lorenzo Morales, Julia Walochnik, Fernando Lares and the editors of Folia Parasitoligica for providing much of these materials. (Additional meeting abstracts are still being sought).
The meetings for which abstracts are currently available are as follows:
FLAM 2005 – XIth International Meeting on the Biology and Pathogenicity of
Free-Living Amoebae – České Budějovice, Czech Republic (Non-refereed abstracts published in Folia Parasitologica Volume 52, issue 4 (supplement pages 1A-18A)
FLAM 2003 – Xth International Meeting on the Biology and Pathogenicity of
Free-Living Amoebae – Ciudad Obregón, Mexico
FLAM 2001 – IXth International Meeting on the Biology and Pathogenicity of
Free-Living Amoebae – Paris, France
CALL FOR HELP: ANYONE WHO MAY HAVE A PRINT VERSION OF THE PROCEEDINGS FROM OTHER FLAM MEETINGS AND IS WILLING TO SHARE THEM, SO THAT THEY CAN BE SCANNED AND ADDED HERE, PLEASE CONTACT PAUL FUERST (firstname.lastname@example.org). IF A PDF OF ANY OTHER MEETING IS AVAILABLE, THIS WOULD BE EVEN MORE WELCOME. THANKS.
