Meeman Biological Field Station

Welcome to the Meeman Biological Field Station

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.

Advising

Course Description: A field-oriented course that provides students with an opportunity to study vertebrate animals in their natural surroundings. The course is designed to offer students the opportunity to learn techniques in an intense 3-week interval prior to the regular summer school session. Biodiversity, life history, techniques of field study, classification, and methods of collection and preservation will be emphasized. Field studies in mammalogy will be most prominent. The course is framed for students who enjoy the outdoors and rigors of fieldwork (e.g., camping, hiking, exploring caves, collecting in various parts of the region). At least one extended-field trip will be taken outside the local area. Informal lectures and discussion will accompany the field experiences. Most of the course will be taught at the Meeman Biological Station.
