Dear FWS members,
I am organizing the 2018 Benthic Ecology Meeting (BEM) in Corpus Christi, Texas, USA. The meeting will be held from 28-30 March 2018, with pre-conference workshops and field trips on 27 March 2018.
The annual BEM first began in 1972 when a small group of benthic ecologists began to meet informally. It has since grown to a large international gathering of 300-600 benthic ecologists. It is a lot of fun to get together with like-minded folks, and I extend a personal invitation to former NABS members to attend.

ALEXANDRIA, VA, January 9, 2018—The Department of Defense (DoD), through the Environmental Security Technology Certification Program (ESTCP), supports the demonstration of technologies that address priority DoD environmental and installation energy requirements. The goal of ESTCP is to promote the transfer of innovative technologies through demonstrations that collect the data needed for regulatory and DoD end-user acceptance. Projects conduct formal demonstrations at DoD facilities and sites in operational settings to document and validate improved performance and cost savings.
