The 1st symposium of The Metropolitan Society of Natural Historians was a great success! It was held in the Richard Gilder Graduate School at the American Museum of Natural History and there were eight presenters and 20 attendees. Talks ranged from dinosaur bone detective work to conservation of birds facing threats from climate change and deforestation; bioinformatics to the adventures of collecting plants.
We would like to thank everyone who presented at the event; all of the talks were informative and interesting. Also, many thanks to Stephanie Loria for organizing the symposium and Sean McKenzie, Maurice Chen, Elizabeth McCarthy, and Bert Harris for the refreshments. Last, but not least, we so appreciate all who attended the event and hope you enjoyed it!
