About BNHC V
The Bahamas Natural History Conference (BNHC) is The Bahamas’ largest scientific conference. Held every two years by the Bahamas National Trust, BNHC gives researchers working in the environmental and natural sciences field an opportunity to share their work with peers, policymakers, and the general public. Having put on four successful conferences from 2013 to 2018, we are currently planning our 5th (now postponed) iteration of the meeting.
The event is called “The Bahamas Natural History Conference: Virtual Webinar Series”, shortened to “BNHC V”, with the ‘V’ indicating the 5th event and the fact that it will be via online platforms (i.e. virtually). This virtual event will be using submissions for BNHC 2020, although it is a stand-in for the 5th conference. Due to the shorter nature of the event and the software available to us, we will be unable to officially host workshops.
Webinars will comprise of 4 speakers presenting on a similar theme or topic, with 15 minutes for presentations and a half-hour group Q&A at the end. Some webinars may have a guest or plenary speaker as well. The sessions will be recorded and uploaded to our YouTube page and linked to this website.
