EPO Activity: Global Science Community Attends Tour of Yellowstone National Park

Project Progress

ABRC provided a day long field trip for scientists attending the 16th annual International Congress on Nitrogen Fixation in June 2009 at Big Sky, Montana. The congress brings together researchers from around the world for networking, scientific discussions, and collaboration. The goal of the congresses is to bring together all active members of the community of scientists and technologists that study the chemistry, biochemistry, genetics, regulation, physiology, ecology, and evolution of the nitrogen-fixation process itself; the agriculturally and environmentally vital interactions between microbes and plants and animals; natural resource conservation; forestry; sustainable agriculture and food production.
