July 1st-5th - 55th Annual Meeting of the Association for Tropical Biology and Conservation (ATBC)

par CNRS@ASEAN - publié le , mis à jour le

The ATBC is global in scope, membership, and objectives, functioning as an international body to promote research, education, conservation, and communication of tropical biology. We are students, researchers, educators, and conservation practitioners concerned with issues of science, conservation, development, and environmental policy in the tropics. We have over 900 members from 67 countries. The society holds annual meetings around the world, publishes the scientific journal Biotropica, and is increasingly engaged in conservation and capacity building activities internationally.

The Association of Tropical Biology and Conservation hosts an annual meeting in a different location. Every year, dozens of symposia, sessions of oral and poster presentations, and debates and panel discussions combine to provide diverse perspectives on critical issues in tropical biology and conservation.

Workshops, courses, meetings of working groups, and a variety of field trips, among other activities are also organized. Our meetings are invigorated by fruitful interactions with colleagues, old friends, and new collaborators, mentees and mentors.

At our last meeting in Mérida, 50% of the delegates were undergraduate and graduate students, showing off the great "regenerative potential" of ATBC.
