Thought this might interest some.
The Northeast Natural History Conference will be held at the
State Plaza Convention Center in Albany, NY on April 20-21, 2006. The
conference is a forum for researchers to present current information
on the varied aspects of natural history for the Northeastern United
States and adjacent Canada. In addition to updating colleagues on
current research, the Northeast Natural History Conference can serve
as a forum to identify research needs, foster friendships, and
rekindle interest in natural history by bringing people with diverse
backgrounds together. The program includes a keynote speaker, paper
and poster sessions, an illustrator's gallery, book market and a banquet.
Attendance at the last conference in 2004 was over 300 people, with
92 oral presentations and 54 poster presentations. We expect this
year's Northeast Natural History Conference to be an even bigger event.
