            MOLECULAR ECOLOGY AND CONSERVATION
                         BIOLOGY

Dates:     Thursday, May 18 (noon) - Saturday, May 20, 1995

Place:     MEDORA, NORTH DAKOTA

Goals:    - explore the interface between molecular population genetics and
ecology at a variety of spatial and temporal scales

     - examine the implications of this interface for conservation biology
and the preservation of biodiversity

Format:  The meeting will feature presentations by well-known biologists
including, John Avise (University of Georgia), Peter Broussard (University
of Nevada, Reno), Terry Erwin (Smithsonian Institution), Robert Fleischer,
(Smithsonian Institution), Lewis Oring (University of Nevada, Reno), and
Patricia Parker (The Ohio State University).  A poster session for all
participants will run continuously between the presentations.  A major
objective of the meeting is to stimulate research ideas that are broadly
related to the area of conservation biology.  Posters by students are
especially invited.  Field trips to the Badlands are being arranged for
Saturday, May 20.

Planning: Medora is an attractive small town (population 112) nestled in the
Badlands of western North Dakota at the entrance of the Theodore
Roosevelt National Park.  The town is easily reached by Interstate 94.
Participants arriving by air will be picked up at Bismarck airport and driven
to Medora about two hours west.  Bismarck is serviced by Northwest,
Frontier, and United Airlines. The meeting will be limited to 150
participants.  Information about registration, hotel costs, meal arrangements
will be sent on request.  To help with the planning, please return the
