The Stanford Chapter of the Society for Conservation Biology invites you to the 17th Bay Area Conservation Biology Symposium on May 7, 2016. As a new chapter, we are thrilled to bring together world-class scientists, professionals, and students to discuss today's newest work in conservation biology. 

For over 15 years, the Conservation Biology Symposium has rotated among different Bay Area universities. This event creates a forum in which researchers from all backgrounds can share recent scientific findings and policy issues in conservation biology. We welcome participants from all backgrounds and all institutions. This an excellent opportunity for Bay Area students and faculty, as well as those working for government agencies, non-profit organizations, and private consulting firms to meet and exchange ideas. 

This year, we are delighted to have Dr. Peter Kareiva, Dr. Michelle Marvier, and Dr. John Terborgh as keynote speakers. For more information, please visit the Speakers page tab.
