Third Meeting Network for Neotropical Biology

January 7 - 10

Dear Colleagues,

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@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!
