The 48th edition of the Annual Benthic Ecology Meeting (BEM 2019) is to be held Apr 3-6, 2019, in St. John’s, Newfoundland (Canada). This yearly meeting is to exchange scientific information focusing on marine benthic ecosystems (e.g., rocky intertidal, coral reef) and to foster the next generation of benthic biologists. The mission of BEM is to promote research in benthic ecosystems, support the exchange of information about benthic ecology, and encourage student participation to develop the next generation of benthic ecologists. BEM is organized exclusively for educational and scientific purposes. Membership in the BEM Society is conferred through attending a yearly meeting. Meetings attract both national and international participants.
