Olá Brasil!

Brazil 2010

Olá Brasil!

I'll be attending a couple of meetings and workshops in Brazil in the coming days. For those of you who know me, you know that the tropics aren't my favorite climate, but Brazil and Amazonia are a hard to miss locale!

I'll fly into São Paulo and have some time to recoup before three days of meeting around the Biodiversity Heritage library (presentation to be posted shortly); our hosts, BIREME, have organized the meetings under the title, Workshop Coleção de Obras Raras Essencial. From there, it's on to Belém in the Brazilian state of Pará, the gateway to the Amazon. 2010 is the United Nations' International Year of Biodiversity and Brazil is kicking it off with the XXVIII Congresso Brasileiro de Zoologia - Biodiversidade e Sustentabilidade. I'll be giving a talk there on the Biodiversity Heritage Library.
