"Extending the Darwinian Panorama"
Veracruz, MexicoJoin us for modern panoramas in systematic and evolutionary biology!
5-10 July 2009
Celebrating 150 years since publication of Darwin’s Origin of Species by Means of Natural Selection, plus observing 150 years since the passing of Alexander von Humboldt, the Father of ecological biogeography.
The International Congress of Systematic and Evolutionary Biology (ICSEB) is convened approximately every six years, the last one having being held in Patras, Greece, in 2002.
The scope of these congresses is to bring plant, animal, and microbial systematists and evolutionary biologists together to discuss and debate topics of general interest. The focus of this congress, in context of significant historical backdrop, is on modern and forward-looking ideas, concepts, and methods in systematic and evolutionary biology. Due to its location, a strong emphasis will also be placed on understanding biodiversity in Latin America.
