Inspired by the global impact of the celebrations of the 250th anniversary of the birth of Alexander von Humboldt (14 September 1769 â€“ 6 May 1859), the International Biogeography Society is launching â€“ International Humboldt Day â€“ an annual celebration of his legacy.
Biogeographers around the world will be celebrating International Humboldt Day during the week of September 12-18, 2020. International Humboldt Day is envisioned as a week of biogeography focused events around the world, that bring together researchers and organizations through the organization of local presentations, activities, and online offerings.
In addition to these global events, IISER Tirupati and NCBS Bangalore are co-organizing an additional set of talks from leading biogeographers.
The talks have been broadly classified into themes, with three talks each day from the 14th to 18th of September.
