Dear Colleagues,

We are pleased to announce that the University of Miami’s National Center
for Coral Reef Research (NCORE, http://ncore.rsmas.miami.edu) will be
hosting a special session on “Coral Reef Restoration” at the upcoming 39th
Annual Benthic Ecology Meeting  -- BEM 2010 -- 10-13 March 2010 - to be
held on the campus of UNC Wilmington.

The purpose of this special session is to provide a forum to
highlight projects and recent advances in reef restoration and coral
propagation and provide an opportunity for researchers, resource managers,
and practitioners to share valuable information on the role that active
reef restoration may play on the long-term survivorship of coral reefs.
Presentations on all aspects of the field of coral reef restoration are
welcome and student participation is especially encouraged.

For  questions on this special session please feel free to
contact Diego Lirman (dlirman at rsmas.miami.edu). For information on the
meeting, please visit the meeting website at:

Abstract submission and early registration ends 15 January 2010.  There
will be an extra $25 fee for late registration.

Please register early (make sure you register for the Coral Reef
Restoration session!!). After you register, you can make modifications to
your abstract on-line as late as 15 Feb!

BEM is one of the premier meetings for marine ecologists in the US, with
sessions ranging from the ecology of salt marshes to coral reefs, from
benthic-pelagic processes to marine population genetics.  It has
historically provided an excellent venue for graduate and undergraduate
students to present their work and interact with established researchers
in all areas of marine biology and ecology.

See you there!!
