ACADIA NATIONAL PARK SCIENCE SYMPOSIUM
Tuesday, October 23, 2012
The Inaugural Acadia National Park Science Symposium, held on October 26, 2011, at the Schoodic Education and Research Center, brought together 110 researchers, students, and park staff to discuss science taking place in and beyond the park boundaries. The symposium featured 5 invited talks and 56 posters describing results and plans for research in a range of disciplines, including natural sciences, social sciences, and the humanities. We plan to continue this symposium on an annual or biennial basis in the years to come. We hope that it continues to highlight the important research taking place in this area and to facilitate the creation of new relationships and collaborations among researchers doing complementary work.
