STRI 4th annual science symposium 2007

Staff scientist Allen Herre and Fellowship and Internship Program administrator Adriana Bilgray convened the 4th Annual Science Symposium at the Earl S. Tupper Center

Staff scientist Allen Herre and Fellowship and Internship Program administrator Adriana Bilgray convened the 4th Annual Science Symposium at the Earl S. Tupper Center in Panama City from Thursday, June 28, to Friday, 29.

Thirty-two speakers celebrated the broad range of intellectual inquiry, institutions, countries and funding sources that continually reshape the STRI community of tropical scholars.

Day one ended with the presentation of a new compilation of STRI work and edited by staff scientists Egbert Giles Leigh, Jr., E. Allen Herre, Jeremy B.C. Jackson and Fernando Santos-Granero. The book was translated into Spanish by Olga Londo˝o. NÚlida Gomez coordinated the project and edited the Spanish version. The book was presented by staff scientists Mireya Correa and Egbert Giles Leigh, Jr., and acting director Eldredge Bermingham.

Each 16-talk day was followed by dinner in the Tupper Center courtyard: a chance to discuss the talks and relax.

Video-recorded talks and power point presentations will be available in DVD format from the Office of Special Events.

Summaries of the symposium talks will be published in the near future.
