Symposium to tackle questions of genetic engineering and biodiversity

d from 1:30 to 5:30 p.m. EDT Saturday, July 31, in the Roone Arledge Cinema, Alfred Lerner Hall, 115th Street and Broadway. The workshop will focus on the SCB's role in addressing conservation issues related to genetic engineering. It will be held from noon to 1:30 p.m. EDT Sunday, Aug. 1, on the fourth floor of Lerner Hall.

"Our goal is to convince conservation biologists that genetic engineering is bound to impact their efforts to conserve biodiversity and to educate them about those issues," said Paulson. "This symposium aims to spark a conversation about the potential risks and benefits of genetic engineering within the Society for Conservation Biology."

The biotechnology and biodiversity symposium, as well as the other symposia, discussions and workshops, are part of the theme for this year's SCB meeting, "Conservation in an Urbanizing World." The symposium and workshop are funded by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and the U.S. Geological Survey. A complete schedule for the meeting is at cerc.columbia.edu/scb2004/schedule.html. Agendas for the symposia are at cerc.columbia.edu/scb2004/symposia.html.
