Subject: Northeast Natural History Conference

Hello everyone-

I am organizing a special session on mollusks at the Northeast Natural History Conference, which will be held in Albany (NY) on 6-9 April 2011. If you are interested in contributing a paper or poster to this session (the session is called “Freshwater Malacology” right now, but I’d be happy to include presentations on marine or terrestrial mollusks), please go to http://www.eaglehill.us/NENHC_2011/NENHC2011 for information about the conference and forms for registering and submitting an abstract. Or, if you have questions or are feeling shy about joining this session, you can email me at strayerd@caryinstitute.org.

The Northeast Natural History Conference is a friendly and lively conference that is held every 2 years at the New York State Museum in Albany. It attracts all kinds of ecologists, conservationists, taxonomists, etc. from throughout the Northeast, and is a fun and simulating conference. I think it’s an especially good and non-threatening place for students or amateurs to give presentations. If you visit the conference web site, you’ll see that there is an attractive slate of workshops in addition to the usual talks and posters.

If you’re working on mollusks in the Northeast, I hope that you’ll think about contributing to this special session. The deadline for submitting an abstract is 1 March 2011, so ACT NOW!!

Please pass this notice along to anyone who might be interested.

Dave Strayer
