Mammalogists to convene in Alaska for annual meeting
Date:6/11/2009

FAIRBANKS, AlaskaMore than 400 biologists from around the world will convene at the University of Alaska Fairbanks later this month for the 89th Annual Meeting of the American Society of Mammalogists.

The meeting runs from June 24-28 and includes technical sessions, poster presentations, symposia and workshops focusing on scientific research on more than 40 species of mammals from little brown bats to big brown bears. Presentations will cover many aspects of the latest mammal research, including genetics, physiology, morphology, behavior, biogeography and conservation.

"The meeting gives participants a chance to find out what colleagues are doing at this moment without waiting the year or more it takes for published research to become publicly available," said Kris Hundertmark, meeting co-chair and a wildlife geneticist at the UAF Institute of Arctic Biology. "These meetings also give us the opportunity to educate our colleagues about issues important to Alaska."

A special presentation on population dynamics, politics and perils of large terrestrial mammals in North America will be presented by R. Terry Bowyer, UAF professor emeritus and chair of the department of biological sciences at Idaho State University on June 28.

The meeting is hosted by the UAF Institute of Arctic Biology and University of Alaska Museum of the North.
