The Iberoamerican Infrastructure for Biodiversity Information (I3B) has accomplished the third of its four planned regional training and experience exchange activities (see the results of the first and second activity here This workshop on ecological niche modelling was co-organized by The National Commission for Knowledge and Use of Biodiversity (CONABIO) and the Spanish GBIF Node (GBIF.ES) in Tepoztlan, Mexico from June 2 to 6. It gathered 30 graduate students and young researchers in the field of biogeography and conservation biology from 10 countries (Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, Ecuador, Mexico, Uruguay and Spain).

The general objective of this theoretical and practical workshop was to offer an overview of ecological niche modelling applications and limitations, and of the recent developments in the field. Participants are committed to implement and disseminate the contents learned in the workshop within their national environments and contribute towards making biological information available of their areas of study. This workshop was sponsored by CYTED, a member of GBIF.
