A consortium of four scientific societies with a collective membership of nearly 20,000 have banded together to organize this inaugural conference that will highlight the leading science, data exploration, curriculum design and implementation in a research-rich education for grades K-16.
- Ecological Society of America (ESA),
- Botanical Society of America (BSA),
- Society for the Study of Evolution (SSE),
- Society for Economic Botany (SEB).
This consortium will jointly manage the LifeDiscoveryEd Digital Library and serve as curators of Society-specific collections within the digital library.
The vision and organization of this event would not be possible without the effort and determination of this group of individuals.
