  • Join us in Kigali, Rwanda for a landmark meeting: ATBC is turning 60!

  • Come, honor, and celebrate how expansive and diverse the field of tropical biology has become! From ant behavior to forest carbon fluxes, to community natural resource management, and political ecology – if it’s about the tropics: bring it on!

  • Share and discover findings and lessons-learned from the collective experience of researching and conserving tropical ecosystems.

  • Come build your network of peers and mentors; or solidify long friendships while finding new and exciting future collaborations.

  • Discover Rwanda – at the heart of Africa–, and the land of a thousand hills, boasting resilient people, vibrant Kigali and captivating biodiversity.  Plan to come early or stay longer to explore what Kigali and the rest of Rwanda has to offer.
