Delta Five was instrumental in building nearly 350 bird boxes for research on resident and migratory non-game birds (flycatchers, wrens, black-capped chickadees, tufted titmouse and other familiar species).
With the help of the Delta Five team, vital edge habitat has been restored by removal of downed trees, broken limbs and invasive species.

Memphis-Wide Bioblitz 2017

BioBlitz 2017The grassroots movement known as citizen-science is again coming to The University of Memphis Meeman Biological Station Friday April 21st (Due to threat of severe weather, the BioBlitz has been rescheduled for Friday May 5)! Memphis Business Academy high school students will participate from 9:00 AM to 1:00 PM Friday. Check out our flyer!

Meeman is one of five sites (also Lichterman Nature Center, Lucius Birch Natural Area, Overton Park and T.O. Fuller State Park) that will participate in this 2nd annual event to find and identify as many species of plants, animals, microbes, fungi and other organisms as possible. All data collected will be uploaded to iNaturalist and by the end of the day, we will have added to the snapshot of biodiversity in Memphis. See our BioBlitz 2017 page for more information!


Welcome to the Meeman Biological Station

Edward J. Meeman Award

The Edward J. Meeman Biological Station consists of two sites: The Meeman site (623 acres; 252 ha) is located about 25 miles north of Memphis and 2 miles east of the Mississippi River on a Chickasaw Bluff. This site is in the narrow transition zone between the Mississippi River Valley and West Tennessee Coastal Plain physiographic regions. The Station and surrounding areas are characterized by low plains and fertile valleys which are drained by the Mississippi River and several tributaries.

The Station has a modest conference/administrative center, large laboratory building with classrooms, research and teaching labs, dormitory room, and a kitchen. The Brunswick site (367 acres; 149 ha) is located adjacent to the Loosahatchie River about 20 miles east of the Meeman Site. This is a bottomland site with sluggish streams, cypress swamps, and numerous old fields surrounded by private lands.

The Station is available to graduate students and qualified investigators throughout the year. Faculty from The University of Memphis and several other institutions in the Mid-South utilize the facility for research purposes. Ongoing research programs include river and wetland ecology, wildlife ecology, plant community ecology, population ecology, evolutionary ecology, ecological genetics, and others.

Courses in ecology, botany, field techniques, and related disciplines are offered during the summer.

AmeriCorps NCCC Team comes to the aid of Meeman Biological Station

Team Delta Five, an 8-member team from AmeriCorps NCCC (National Civilian Community Corps), has called The University of Memphis Edward J. Meeman Biological Station (MBS) home for the past two weeks as they came to the aid of the 623-acre complex of forest and field habitat. MBS is nestled adjacent to Meeman-Shelby State Park in northwest Shelby County and has been the site of teaching, training and research for faculty and students in the Department of Biological Sciences since 1968.
