A distinguished group of twenty invited speakers representing seventeen different institutions will gather at Bowdoin College Friday and Saturday, May 2 and 3, 2008, for the second biannual "State of Marine Ecology in Maine" symposium.

The symposium is one of the few formal opportunities for marine ecologists in the Gulf of Maine to gather and discuss their research and its implications. In addition, the event serves to increase awareness of student involvement in research in the Gulf of Maine.

In addition to lectures by invited speakers, the symposium will also feature a poster session spotlighting twenty student research projects.
