6th Biennial Biodiversity Research Conference
A full weekend of conference talks, keynote speaker, and
field trips exploring the biodiversity of Nantucket - come
for just the one day conference or stay for all of the events!
November 13th - 16th 2015, with conference talks
on November 14th.
The goal of the Nantucket Biodiversity Initiative (NBI) research program is to increase knowledge of understudied taxonomic groups and of the overall biodiversity of Nantucket, Tuckernuck, Muskeget and surrounding waters. The NBI facilitates collaboration, research and data storage and sharing between on and off-island researchers, conservation interests and the general public.
Our conference is held on Nantucket every other year and provides an opportunity to share the results of research being conducted on Nantucket and surrounding areas with other researchers and the public. This is an excellent opportunity to share your research, network with other researchers and naturalists, and to get an over view of the many different research projects on Nantucket and surrounding areas!
