Network for Neotropical Biogeography

Scientific interactions across disciplines and taxa

Welcome to Network for Neotropical Biogeography

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.

The primary goals of this network are to: 1) Promote scientific interaction; 2) Stimulate the exchange of material, students and researchers; 3) Increase inter-disciplinarity between different fields; 4) Discuss and plan joint projects and grant applications; 5) Stimulate collaborative field work and reciprocal help with field collection of research material; 6) Inform on upcoming events, recent papers and other relevant material.
