2014 Joint Aquatic Sciences Meeting


Humans rely on water, for our well-being, our livelihoods, our recreation. With increasing human population and accelerating climate change, social and scientific concerns over sustainable water resources are growing.

Scientists strive to understand how natural biological and chemical processes support the health and integrity of aquatic ecosystems. But to be effective, knowledge must be communicated in a clear and understandable fashion with the public and policy makers.

In response to emerging water-related challenges, a ground-breaking meeting of four aquatic science societies will be convened in Portland Oregon on 18-23 May, 2014. The first ever, Joint Aquatic Science Meeting (JASM), has the theme “Bridging Genes to Ecosystems: Aquatic Science in a time of Rapid Change.”
