Biogeosciences.org launches

An innovative new Web site bridging the earth and life sciences goes online today, providing a single resource for all things biogeoscience related. Biogeosciences.org is a natural home for biogeoscience discussion, resources, and promotion.

The non-commercial Web site, http://www.biogeosciences.org, was developed by the Geological Society of America (GSA) and is supported by a grant from the Biogeosciences program of the National Science Foundation. The site draws from several partnered professional societies and elsewhere to present an outstanding collection of biogeoscience resources for all levels of education and interest. "I'm extremely delighted to be able to announce the unveiling of this tremendous resource for the science community," says Dr. Jack Hess, Executive Director of GSA.

Basic biogeoscience links and program resources are available for kids, students, undergraduates, and teachers, along with more detailed information on jobs, funding, and opportunities for professionals and principal investigators.

The new Web site has comprehensive lists of degree and research programs in biogeoscience, applicable journals and other publications, and a complete database of relevant conferences and meetings. Special sections, symposia, or field trips concerning biogeoscience are also featured.

One of the exciting, interactive features of biogeosciences.org is a discussion forum. The forum allows for the rapid dissemination of ideas and opinions. Forums address some of the most important issues facing biogeoscience today, including funding decisions, education possibilities, and the challenge of defining an evolving and fluid field. "It is fascinating to me," says Dr. Sherry Cady, one of the project team members involved in the creation of the Web site, "that the biogeoscience community now has a forum by which all can enter into the debate as to where do we go from here."
