Biennial Scientific Conference on the GYE

The Greater Yellowstone biennial scientific conference series, initiated in 1991, encourages awareness and application of wide-ranging, high-caliber scientific work on the region's natural and cultural resources. These conferences, with the active involvement of professional societies and other institutions, provide a much-needed forum for knowledge-sharing among hundreds of researchers, park managers, and the general public. They attract world-class speakers and are interdisciplinary by design.

These conferences, and the nine large proceedings volumes they have produced, are perhaps the single most significant new source of scientific information on Greater Yellowstone in the history of the region.
