NAS Biodiversity and Extinction Meeting Dec. 7-8
Date:10/30/2007

The National Academy of Sciences' Sackler Colloquium series will hold a meeting on the so-called biodiversity crisis and whether a mass extinction of plants and animals is under way. Leading researchers and students will discuss recent discoveries and concepts regarding the global abundance and distribution of biodiversity, and compare these patterns with conditions in the near and distant evolutionary past, as well as with those plausible in the near future.

DETAILS:

The Sackler Colloquium, In the Light of Evolution II: Biodiversity and Extinction, will take place Dec. 7 and 8 at the Arnold and Mabel Beckman Center, 100 Academy Drive, Irvine, Calif. A program agenda and registration information are available online at www.nasonline.org/Sackler_biodiversity. Reporters who wish to attend must register in advance.
