Society for Conservation Biology to hold 17th Annual Meeting in Duluth June 28-July 2

MINNEAPOLIS / ST. PAUL--Coastal pollution, loss of coral reefs, the struggle to maintain biodiversity these challenging natural resource issues and many others faced across the world today are strongly linked to the interactions between land and water. The management and understanding of land, freshwater, and marine systems are essential to effectively deal with these problems. These situations, in addition to current estimates that by 2005, two-thirds of the world's population will be living with serious water shortages or almost no water at all, led the United Nations to designate 2003 as the International Year of Fresh Water.

An international gathering of more than 1,200 biologists will convene this summer in Duluth, Minn., to discuss interactions between land and water. The 17th annual Society for Conservation Biology meeting will run from June 28 through July 2. It is hosted by the University of Minnesota- Duluth's Natural Resources Research Institute and Continuing Education Program and the University of Minnesota's Sea Grant Program and Conservation Biology Graduate Program.

"It's fitting to host this meeting on the coast of Lake Superior," said Carl Richards, director for Minnesota Sea Grant. "It's one of the largest lakes in the world in a region with an extremely high density of inland lakes, rivers, and wetlands next to urban, agricultural, and forested areas. The areas where land meets water are dynamic. Most are home to unique species and are exposed to many human and natural disturbances. Through this meeting, we will encourage dialogue on land-water interactions, as well as a host of other conservation biology topics."

Plenary presentations will be given by Michael Dombeck, Pioneer Professor of Global Environmental Management at the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point and former director of the U.S. Forest Service; Jane Lubchenco, Valley Professor of Marine Biology and Distinguished Professor of Zoology at Oregon State
