We are pleased to announce the Third Meeting of the Network for Neotropical Biogeography (NNB3) that will take place at the Universidad de los Andes in Bogotá, Colombia, on January 7--10, 2014. The theme of the meeting will be ‘Space, Time, Form and Genes.’ The event includes pre-meeting workshops (Jan. 7--8) and optional post-meeting field trips to unique Colombian habitats.
Please visit the conference website http://nnb3.uniandes.edu.co for updated information or contact nnb3 at uniandes.edu.co<mailto:nnb3 at uniandes.edu.co>.
The Network for Neotropical Biogeography (http://nnb.myspecies.info) promotes scientific interactions across disciplines and taxa with the following goals:
• Promote scientific interaction
• Stimulate the exchange of material, students and researchers
• Increase inter-disciplinarity between different fields
• Discuss and plan joint projects and grant applications
• Stimulate collaborative fieldwork and reciprocal help with field collection of research material
• Inform on upcoming events, recent papers and other relevant material
The NNB was established during a symposium at the BioSystematics conference in Berlin in February 2011. A second meeting, with the theme ‘Integrating Neotropical Research,’ was held at the Montgomery Botanical Center, Coral Gables, Miami, Florida, USA, on January 14th, 2013 immediately following the 6th Biennial meeting of the International Biogeography Society.
Tropical America – the Neotropics – is the most species-rich region on Earth. Understanding the mechanisms underlying the historical assembly and evolution of this extreme biodiversity constitutes a major challenge in biology, and will require hitherto unrealized inter-disciplinary scientific collaboration.
We look forward to seeing you in Bogotá!
