The 86th Annual Meeting of the American Society of Mammalogists will be held 
17-21 June, 2006 at The University of Massachusetts, Amherst, MA. In 
addition to contributed oral and poster presentations covering all aspects 
of mammalian biology, this year's program will feature two symposia. 
"Large-scale marine ecosystem change and the conservation of marine mammals" 
will be convened by Drs. Tom O'Shea and Dan Odell.  Speakers include Peter 
Tyack, Sue Moore, Scott Kraus and Andy Read. Details can be found on the ASM 
Conference web page. "The Northern flying squirrel: a biological portrait of 
a forest specialist in post-European North America" will be convened by Dr. 
Winston Smith. Special addresses will be offered by the recipients of the 
Joseph Grinnell (Mark Hafner) and C. Hart Merriam (Kay Holekamp) awards, as 
well as by student honorees.  Our capstone speaker will be announced at a 
later date. Also included are the usual ASM socials, ideal for professional 
interaction.  Non-members who are interested in attending the meetings 
and/or presenting papers should request materials from the Chairpersons of 
the Local Program Committee, Virginia Hayssen (Vhayssen at science.smith.edu)
