California Islands Symposia

The California Islands Symposia are a series of irregular meetings convened to present recent findings in science and management on California's islands, including the Channel Islands and those off the west coast of Baja California, Mexico. The symposia have been held every five years or so since 1965, and record recent island work in all disciplines of natural and cultural science. They are sponsored by a fluid consortium of agencies, non-profits, conservancies and academics involved in the work and management of the islands. Results presented at each symposium have been published in written proceedings, all of which are now available digitally.

The 9th California Islands Symposium will be held on October 3-7, 2016 in Ventura, CA.
