2012 ATBI Conference

2012 ATBI Conference

Discover Life in America is proud to be putting on the 15th annual All Taxa Biodiversity Inventory Conference this coming Spring. The conference will be held over three days - the 22nd, 23rd, and 24th of March, 2012 - at the Glenstone Lodge in beautiful Gatlinburg, Tennessee. Although the main focus of the event is the presentation of scientific ATBI research, past conferences have included field trips in the Smokies, nature hikes and photography, fund-raising auctions, book signings, and general good times with good friends. The conference is open to scientists, researchers, educators, the press, and interested members of the public.

As a bonus again this year, DLIA is privileged to partner with the Great Smoky Mountains National Park in accomodating the presentation sessions of the Park Science Colloquium on the first day of the Conference.

Thank you for a great 2014 ATBI Conference

Thank you to all who participated in, and attended our annual ATBI Conference of March 2014. We believe it was very profitable: not only for the attendees in general, but for the gathering and collaboration of experts in the field of conservation biology. We were also delighted and enthused by the presence and presentations of our keynote speaker, bat conservationist and author, Dr. Merlin Tuttle.

Thank you Dr. Tuttle!
