Does pet food serve as an entry route for alien plants into the Maltese islands? What effect do conifer resins have on cancer cells; and how much litter is there in Maltese coastal waters? The answers to these and many other questions will be given at this year’s annual biology symposium, which will be held on Saturday morning.

The annual symposium serves to showcase the findings from research projects undertaken by undergraduate and postgraduate students at the University of Malta’s Department of Biology.

The event is aimed at sixth form and University students study­ing biology, governmental organisations and NGOs dealing with the environment, and professionals working in environ­mental consultancy, planning and management.

A booklet with abstracts of the research projects will be distribu­ted during registration.

The symposium will be held on Saturday at the University of Malta’s Gateway Hall E, Msida campus. Registration opens at 8.30pm. For further information call James Fenech on 2340 2272 or e-mail james.fenech@um.edu.mt.
