>Dear Colleagues,
>A new initiative by the European Commission offers the possiblity for
>scientists from Central & Eastern European countries, including the
>countries of the former Soviet Union, to obtain support to attend
>conferences in Europe.
>We have been advised that such scientists wishing to attend the forthcoming
>workshop (First International Workshop of the Fish Ontogeny Network of
>Europe (FONE) 'WHEN DO FISH BECOME JUVENILES? - Looking beyond
>metamorphosis to juvenile development', 1-4 September 1997 in Bratislava,
>Slovakia) could be eligible for support under this scheme.
>If you have considered, or were considering, attendence of the workshop,
>but were unable to for financial reasons, then please contact me and Vlado
>Kovac on his eMail address ([log in to unmask]) as soon as possible
>I will be in Bratislava 13-20 April working with Vlado on the proposal to
>the EU, so please inform us of your interest IMMEDIATELY. Please include
>your full name and work address, your nationality, and your estimated costs
>of air and/or rail travel (which ever is most appropriate) to reach Vienna
>We include at the end of this communication, the most recent circular for
>your information.
>We are still willing to accept abstract submissions for oral and poster
>communications were you unable to meet the 15 March deadline.

>Until recently, the juvenile period of fish life history has received
>little attention. In contrast to the transitions between all other periods
>of the life history, the transition between larval and juvenile development
>in fishes remains ill-defined. A clear definition of the larval-to-juvenile
>transition is important for:
>1) the development and application of fisheries recruitment models,
>2) the use of ontogenetic scales for interspecific comparisons of
>morphological development,
>3) the identification of ontogenetic shifts in resource use, and
>4) to reveal evolutionary trajectories of species or genera.
>The purpose of the workshop will be to foster an integrated approach in the
