Outreach and Publications
From Researchers' Night in Reykjavik.
The IINH organizes educational outreach and disseminates information on nature in Iceland. It is actively involved with schools and students of all grade levels, the general public and the scientific community at large. It also provides scientific and scholarly support for the Icelandic Museum of Natural History.
The IINH holds a public lecture series (Hrafnathing) during the winter months. Lectures are generally held every other week and provide a forum for discussion on natural history topics. Staff members present their research and guest speakers are invited to give talks.
Materials that the IINH prepares and disseminates include distribution maps for plants and animals, data on the conservation status of species, vegetation maps, habitat type maps, geothermal and geological maps, data on landslides and associated risks and data on sustainable harvest.
