Humboldt congress

Two centuries ago Alexander von Humboldt explored the linkages between geology, ecology, and diversity, and laid one of the cornerstones of biogeography. The 2019 IBS Special Meeting and the 2nd Latin American Congress of Biogeography celebrate the 250th anniversary of Humboldt’s birth and his legacy!

This academic celebration will take place in Ecuador, one of the most symbolic and relevant places in Humboldt´s studies, as exemplified by his Naturgemälde. The event is organized by the IBS, Universidad San Francisco de Quito (USFQ), Universidad Regional Amazónica IKIAM, and the Latin American Network for the Study of Neotropical Biogeography (Red-BioN), and will be housed at USFQ, in Quito, Ecuador.
