October 10-12, 2013 – Kourou : the CEBA organizes its first thematic school on “neotropical biogeography”

One of the major issues in biodiversity research is to understand when and how the vast biodiversity we observe today in Amazonia has emerged. New techniques are available to construct more accurate scenarios of the history of Neotropical biodiversity (phylogenomic, ancestral range estimation, paleoclimatic models).

The CEBA’s first thematic school will offer an advanced training in these new approaches. It is open to PhD students, post-doctoral researchers, early-career scientists and professionals in neotropical conservation.
The number of participants is limited to 15.
