The National Association of Biology Teachers (NABT) is an American-based scholarly society.

NABT was formed in 1938 and incorporated in 1956. Their membership comprises thousands of biology educators and administrators—representing all grade levels—from the U.S. and abroad.[1] NABT also publishes the journal The American Biology Teacher nine times a year. Subscriptions to the journal are available for institutions. Individuals may purchase individual issues.[2]

NABT has a large number of sections, affiliations and committees that help to facilitate networking and support. Some examples of these are:
4-Year College Section
2-Year College Section
AP Biology
Multicultural Affairs Section
International Section
Role & Status of Women in Biology Education
Retired Members Section
State and Province Affiliate
NABT BioClub
Outreach Coordinators & Informal Educators

NABT has been involved in several controversies over teaching of creationism in public schools, including McLean v. Arkansas in 1982 and Kitzmiller v. Dover Area School District in 2005.
