2011 International Biodiversity Conference

The program selection committee of the 2011 International Biodiversity Conference is now accepting abstracts to participate in its third conference in Baí±os, Ecuador, July 29 – August 4, 2011.  

 The committee encourages all researchers, wildlife managers, field ecologists, and environmental educators to share their research and findings in the areas of biodiversity, field ecology, environmental conflict resolution, and biogeography.  

Why Baí±os, Ecuador?  Considered by many of our colleagues this area of Ecuador is one of the most biodiverse places on earth and one of the most dynamic in terms if speciation. Wild Spots Foundation over the past 25 years has involved ecologists, zoologists, geologists, and photographers to develop a photographic inventory of endangered/threatened plant and animal species in this part of the world. It is also a region where Ecuadorian and American scientists are defining new ecological habitats and discovering new species.  The Foundation with the support of its friends in Ecuador and around the world wish to learn more about this unique ecosystem,   share research from all over the world, and develop new questions for further study.  

The 2011 International Biodiversity Conference is bilingual and sponsored by Wild Spots Foundation, San Martin Zoological Gardens, City of Baí±os, and several corporate sponsors.        Our general paper categories include:Ecological Biodiversity ResearchSpecies-Specific Research from around the worldBiodiversity in a changing climateBiogeography projects and related research Physical impact of volcanism upon biodiversityGIS and spatial ecology researchInnovative Environmental Education/Community Programs  

Abstracts (250 word maximum) are now due.  
 The deadline is June 1, 2011.   Please submit abstracts and the proposed title of your presentation to [email protected]. Paper acceptance is on an ongoing basis until presentation slots are filled.
