Apologies for cross postings.....

Mark your calendars!
The 39th annual Benthic Ecology Meeting will be held 10-13 March 2010 on the beautiful campus of UNC Wilmington!
Check and bookmark this website: http://www.benthicecologymeeting2010.org/

Registration and call for abstracts begins 6 November and ends 15 January.

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.

This year promises to be the least expensive, largest and most exciting BEM ever:
 - central location for travel, hotel rates starting at $63/night quad occupancy
 - lowest registration fees in many years
 - Co-sponsorship by the Southeastern Estuarine Research Society (SEERS)
 - Awards for the best student presentations and posters
 - Inaugural "Beneath the Waves Film Festival"
 - Beautiful venue in the new Burney and Fisher Centers in the heart of UNCW's campus
 - 10 minute access to charming and historic downtown Wilmington or beautiful Wrightsville Beach
 - closing banquet cruise on the "Henrietta III" with dancing and karaoke

If you would like to organize a special session or symposium, let us know!
