Welcome to Marine Environment Research

    The Marine Environment Research (MER) group is a meeting place for scientists from UBC and southern British Columbia who conduct research in marine ecosystems. This website is meant to promote collaborations between labs in different departments or industries, provide current graduate students with relevant information, and for prospective students who are interested in marine research in British Columbia.
    This site is a work in progress and would greatly benefit from your input! Please post information about your lab, seminars and conferences, and exciting marine research news! To add your lab, contact the current web master Megan Mach - machery at gmail dot com. Add your own seminar and conference postings by filling out the information forms on the respective pages.
