BRAZILIAN BIODIVERSITY WORKING GROUP


The Brazilian Science Council (CNPq) has established a Brazilian Biodiversity Working Group - GTB (Grupo de Trabalho em Biodiversidade) with a view to establishing an inter- institutional, technical forum for the various levels of biodiversity (genes, species, communities and ecosystems), which will periodically and systematically meet to examine and discuss questions concerned specifically with the conservation and sustained use of Brazil's fauna and flora. The Working Group will act as a point of reference in supplying advice to government agencies, as well as bilateral and multilateral funding institutions, and the environment and conservation community in general, regarding the technical and scientific aspects required for the identification of priorities and strategies at the regional and national level. The GTB will also serve as a reference point for the Brazilian members of the Specialist Groups of the World Conservation Union (IUCN) Species Survival Commission (SSC), making use of the scientific and intellectual resources of the largest international voluntary network of experts in biodiversity conservation, today counting on more than 7,000 participants world-wide.

For more information about the Brazilian Biodiversity Working Group, contact Gustavo A. B. da Fonseca, Coordenador do GTB, c/o Conservation International do Brasil, Avenida Antonio Abrahao Caram 820/302, 31275-000 Belo Horizonte, Minas Gerais, Brazil; Tel./Fax: 55 31 441-1795; E-mail: g.fonseca@conservation.org.br.


MESOAMERICAN SOCIETY


The Mesoamerican Society for Biology and Conservation was formed on January 14, 1996 by a group of biologists from five countries and numerous branches of the biological sciences. The society serves biologists and conservationists throughout Central America and southern Mexico by publishing a newsletter, Mesoamericana and by sponsoring annual meetings in Mesoamerica. The quarterly newsletter will include news in Spanish and English of current projects, meetings, and literature, as well as biographical sketches of founding members, and short, non-technical articles of general use to biologists working in Mesoamerica. Membership is US$20 for individuals and $40 for institutions (includes 3 issues of Mesoamericana). Membership fees may be sent to Oliver Komar, Department of Zoology, Ohio Wesleyan University, Delaware, Ohio 43015; Tel.: (614) 369-0175; E-mail: ookomar@cc.owu.edu. Checks should be payable to Mesoamerican Society for Biology and Conservation.

Mesoamerican residents have a 50% lower membership fee ($10/$20), and can contact the Society's Secretary, Silvia C. Chalukian, Departamento de Recursos Naturales y Conservacion Biologica, Escuela Agricola Panamericana, Apartado 93, Tegucigalpa, Honduras; Tel.: 504-76-6140; Fax: 504-76-6234; E- mail: eapdrn@ns.hondumet.net or eaphpcs@ns.hondunet.net.

FELLOWSHIPS


The Atlantic Center for the Environment will conduct a five- week fellowship program on land conservation and stewardship for conservation professionals from countries in the Caribbean and Latin America July 6 - August 9 in Ipswich, Massachusetts. Six positions will be available. This intensive program will be practical and problem-solving in its approach, introducing participants to conservation issues in the United States and eastern Canada. The fellowship will focus on landscape conservation and the related topics of biodiversity conservation, rural economic development, and sustainable agriculture and forestry.

The fellowship program is open to individuals working as leaders, staff or volunteers with a Latin American or Caribbean institution (NGO or government agency) active in the areas of biodiversity conservation, landscape conservation, sustainable agriculture, sustainable forestry or rural community development. Applicants should be able to work well in a group and actively participate in discussions in English.

Interested applicants should send a letter of application (no more than four pages, in English, answering the following questions: 1) Describe your experience in environmental protection, generally and in land conservation stewardship, in particular, describing any relevant projects that you are working on or planning; 2) What are your long-term goals for promoting landscape conservation and stewardship in your community, region or country?; 3) What are the specific needs of your NGO to help strengthen its function and activities in this area?; 4) How would this fellowship experience benefit your work and that of your organization? How would you disseminate the knowledge gained to other NGOs? and 5) In what ways could you imagine playing a long-term role in an NGO stewardship project at the local, national and/or international levels? Also send: 1) a resume or curriculum vitae; 2) a brief description of the organization with which you work and its activities; and 3) two letters of reference (one should be the leader of another NGO) describing the applicant's qualifications, activities within the environmental movement, and the potential impact of the fellowship opportunity on his/her work.

Application materials should be sent to: Brent Mitchell, Director of Stewardship, QLF/Atlantic Center for the Environment, 55 South Main Street, Ipswich, MA 01938; E-mail: brentmitchell@qlf.org. Application deadline: April 1. Notification of decisions will be made in May.
