SYMPOSIUM 

APPALACHIAN BIOGEOGRAPHY

JUNE 25 - 29, 1995
VIRGINIA POLYTECHNIC INSTITUTE AND STATE UNIVERSITY
BLACKSBURG, VIRGINIA

The biota of the Appalachian mountains reflects the effects of millions of
years of continuous change.  The result has been the development of a rich
biological component which offers unique opportunities for the study of
evolutionary and ecological relationships among species and communities.

Our understanding of Appalachian biogeography has resulted from the
contributions of researchers in numerous and diverse disciplines.  These
were last brought together in a symposium over 25 years ago.  Much has
been accomplished since that time and the purpose of this symposium is to
bring these disciplines together again, in a single forum. 

Papers will be presented which relate to the present or historical
biogeography of the Appalachians and factors influencing Appalachian
biogeography.  Presentations will include topics from the following
disciplines.

                         Botany    
                         Geology   
                         Invertebrate biology
                         Paleobiology
                         Paleoclimatology
                         Physical geography
                         Vertebrate biology
