About SMBC

The Mesoamerican Society for Biology and Conservation (SMBC) was formed in Honduras in January 1996 in response to the lack of regional communication forums for students and professionals in the areas of biology and conservation of natural resources in Central America.
The Mission of the SMBC is to promote exchange of knowledge, training, and dissemination of scientific research to pursue the conservation of biological and cultural diversity in Mesoamerica through an important forum like the congresses, in which students and researchers from neighboring countries get to know each other and their work. Currently, the SMBC includes chapters in each one of the Mesoamerican countries plus Cuba and Colombia.
