IV International Society of the Biodiversity of the Guiana Shield (IBG) Congress, Guyana

August 13, 2016

The IV International Society of the Biodiversity of the Guiana Shield (IBG) Congress took place 8-12 August in Georgetown, Guyana and we presented work on fire management, community owned solutions and peer-to-peer knowledge exchange.

The Congress provided a unique opportunity to share our findings with academics and practitioners working both within the government and non-governmental sectors on issues of conservation and development across the countries of the Guiana Shield. Attached are the abstracts of our presentations.
