The New Hampshire Department of Environmental Services wishes to thank each of the ~150 attendees for participating in the 32nd annual meeting of the New England Association of Environmental Biologists. The meeting included some excellent poster and oral presentations and we are thankful to all those that submitted this material. It was our pleasure to host the meeting this year and hope you enjoyed it as well.

Below are the final agenda and a table with links to each of the oral presentations.
