NBII Participates in 2010 Jamaica Bay BioBlitz

The 2010 Jamaica Bay BioBlitz, which was held on June 11th and 12th at the Floyd Bennett Field and adjacent areas including Plumb Beach and Dead Horse Bay, attracted hundreds of scientists and amateur naturalists. NBII’s Ricardo McClees-Funinan took part in the 24-hour marathon to catalog the biodiversity of the area and shared some of his photos with us.  Visit the NBII Facebook Fan page for images from the Jamaica Bay 2010 BioBlitz.

The Jamaica Bay Research and Management Information Network (JBRMIN), hosted by the National Biological Information Infrastructure (NBII)'s Northeast Information Node (NIN) at the Center for International Earth Science Information Network (CIESIN), is the official Web site of the 2010 BioBlitz.  You can also follow the National Park Service (NPS) on Twitter at
