Benthic Ecology Meeting 2014

The 43rd Annual Benthic Ecology Meeting will be held in Jacksonville, Florida on the campus of the University of North Florida from March 19-22, 2014. 

The Benthic Ecology Meeting (BEM) is one of the largest scientific meetings for marine biologists in the USA.  The 43rd meeting will be hosted by the University of North Florida and we anticipate more than 600 registrants:  a mix of the nation’s top marine ecologists and up-and-coming graduate and undergraduate students.  


Beneath the Waves Film Festival will once again be held in conjunction with the conference with a showing on Thursday evening. 

Conference events on the UNF Campus will be held in the Adam W. Herbert University Center.
