Coordinators of these working groups will be present: Microbial Ecology, Reef Ecology, Physiology & Fitness, Disease, Reproduction, Education & Outreach, Bleaching collaboration, and another to represent the remaining groups.

Latin-American Reef Encounter

6/22/2016 | 19:30 - 21:30 | 305 A/B

The meeting is intended to bring together all Latin American and Caribbean coral reef researchers to discuss the need to formally organize a Latin American Chapter of the ISRS. A quick examination of the active membership of ISRS suggests that Latin American reef researchers are significantly under-represented in ISRS. This activity will be an 1 hr meeting to discuss with Latin American and Caribbean researchers, students, managers, and representatives from ISRS board of directors the best strategies for enhancing the representation of Latin American reef researchers in ISRS, the willingness and need to formally establish a Latin American Chapter of ISRS, and the possibility of developing Spanish-written products at ISRS web page, including Spanish-written articles in Reef Encounter. This will represent a first step towards organizing a small team of scientists willing to collaborate in such efforts.
