ASCB Summer Research Conference
The American Society for Cell Biology is sponsoring a conference entitled "Algal Experimental Systems in Cell Biological Research" to bring together investigators and students to discuss basic cell biological phenomena being studied with algal models. A major purpose of the meeting is to promote exchange of information on techniques and materials to the mutual benefit of researchers now working in diverse areas. The numerous advantages of using appropriate algal models for basic research should become more apparent to the research community from the proceedings and subsequent publication.
This conference will be held at the Airlie House Conference Center, Airlie. Virginia, June 25-29, 1988.
In addition to the post-presentation question periods, there will be scheduled discussion times on topics and on organisms of particular interest. There will be workshops/demonstrations on immuno microscopy, potentials of image analysis, fluorescence/flow cytometry, and microinjection and electrofusion techniques. The organizers for the conference are Drs. A. W. Coleman, Brown University, Providence and L. J. Goff, University of California, Santa Cruz.
Requests for program and application information should be addressed to: ASCB Summer Research conference, national office, 9650 Rockville Pike, Bethesda, MD 20814 (301)530-7153.
Studies of the movement of proteins between intracellular organelles, the redistribution of organelles during cell division to daughter cells, and the striking spatial organization of proteins, mRNAs, chromosomes, and other cellular structures, have led to the realization that sorting of macro-molecules is critical for cellular function and development. In this conference, jointly sponsored by the American Society for Cell Biology and the European Molecular Biology Organization, we hope to bring together developmental and cell biologists to identify key questions for future investigation. Participants will have the opportunity to present posters. "Sorting in Eukaryotic Cells" will be held at the Atholl Palace Hotel, Pitlochry, Scotland, September I1-15, 1988.
Additional information may be obtained from: ASCB/EMBO Conference, ASCB National Office. 9650 Rockville Pike, Bethesda, Maryland 20814, (301)530-7153.
The Botanical Society of America will receive a check for $4,000 in June or July, toward establishment of a Stebbins Symposium in Plant Evolutionary Biology. The symposium is to be held for the first time at the annual meeting of the Botanical Society with AIBS in August, 1988 at the University of California, Davis, where Professor Stebbins taught and conducted research.
The funds for the symposium were donated by Dr. Leslie Gottlieb and Dr. S. K. Jain of the Department of Genetics, University of California, Davis. The funds, which eventually may reach $10,000, represent the royalties for "Plant Evolutionary Biology", being published by Chapman and Hall, the proceedings volume of the Stebbins Symposium in Evolutionary Biology which was held in Davis in September, 1986 and which was organized by Professors Gottlieb and Jain. They expect that the funds will allow the Botanical Society to organize an outstanding symposium, to be held in even-numbered years, on any of the several topics which were and are of interest to Professor Stebbins. Sugggested themes include population genetics, population biology, sytematics, evolution, molecular and developmental biology. A committee to plan this year's symposium has been appointed by the society president; it is headed by W. H. Wanger and includes Beryl Simpson and Spencer Barrett. The theme and speakers will be announced later. Drs. Gottlieb and Jain expect that the Symposium will serve as a continuing tribute to the inspiring work of Professor Stebbins, and will provide an opportunity for the Botanical Society membership to hear discussions of outstanding new research in progress in evolutionary biology. Drs. Gottlieb and Jain are to be commended wholeheartedly for their public-spirited use of the royalties from their book. We can look forward to an exciting symposium next summer at Davis!
"The Proterozoic Biosphere: A Multidisciplinary Study" symposium will be held 20-22 August 1988 at the Center for the Study of Evolution and the Origin of Life, University of California, Los Angeles, California. This symposium is organized by the Precambrian Paleobiology Research Group-Proterozoic.

Southern Appalachian Botanical Club Seeking Contributions
At the--5-0th Anniversary of the Southern Appalachian Botanical Club in 1986 the organization began working on a five year endowment fund drive to raise $200,000 to ensure the perpetual publication of SABC's journal CASTANEA. Part of the endowment fund drive's goal has been to secure pledges from individual botanists in $300 amounts to provide at least 10% of the total endowment fund. Corporate and private foundations are being solicited for the balance of the total. By the end of 1987 the individual member contribution had almost met the 10% goal and numerous small contributions have been received in addition to the $300 pledges. Botanists
