Integrative Elasmobranch Biology Symposium

The American Elasmobranch Society is pleased to announce that our research symposium for the 2015 JMIH in Reno will be focus on integrative biology of elasmobranchs. This symposium will feature cutting-edge, interdisciplinary science that incorporates elasmobranchs in keeping with the mission of the American Elasmobranch Society.  We aim to create a prospective, rather than retrospective, framework for integrative elasmobranch research.  Meaning, we hope to identify areas of future research more so than just review where we have been in the past.  We seek to feature research by early career scientists in order to provide these researchers the opportunity to showcase their work and how it fits within this paradigm.
