August 10 - 15, iDigBio goes to Ecological Society of America's 2014 Conference. The conference theme, “From Oceans to Mountains: It’s All Ecology”, nicely encompasses the main goal of the iDigBio mission - to provide vouchered specimen data to stakeholders for their research. From their website,
"...That’s right! Ecology is everywhere. Whether we are exploring the depths of the ocean, arid desert communities, or frigid mountaintops, we find abundant ecological interaction among organisms and environment. These fascinating relationships abound in every setting..."
If you're attending ESA, stop by and visit us at our booth in the exhibit hall!
iDigBio is excited to be a part of this conference and we are looking forward to interacting with the ecological community and engaging them in our ADBC endeavors. We will be sharing our resources, as well as those of TCNs and other groups involved in digitizing biodiversity specimens. We also hope to get feedback from ecologists about their experiences with, and needs for, historical and museum data. Read more about the meeting in the Conference Program.
