NADS Field Meetings
Field meetings of the North American Dipterists Society are held every
two years at different venues in North America. The meetings provide an
opportunity for North American dipterists to collect Diptera in a group
situation and to exchange ideas during oral and poster presentations.
In keeping with the informal nature of the Society, the meetings are organized
on a volunteer basis by a dipterist who knows of a location that has meeting
facilities for about 30-40 people and easy access to interesting habitats.
