Welcome to ATBC in India !

The Association for Tropical Biology and Conservation (ATBC), Indian Regional Association for Landscape Ecology (IRALE) and Kumaraguru Institutions (KI), take pleasure in extending warm welcome to all delegates and participants of the 59th Meeting of the ATBC. Located in the lap of Western Ghats, one of the oldest mountain range, known for its high biodiversity, the venue Coimbatore in Tamil Nadu, India is a multicultural vibrant city. Conservation has always been an integral part of societal value in the country. From the high mountains of the Himalaya, through the Gangetic flood plains, north-eastern hills, central Indian highlands, vast deserts, the eastern ghats, the western ghats and large coastal and marine system are symbolic of unique species assemblages. The leadership in science, conservation and societal development can be seen across diverse biogeographic zone of India. Together with the researchers and leaders of tropical biodiversity and conservation, ATBC 2023 aims to explore and illustrate the options and opportunities for balancing science, conservation and society around the world of tropical biodiversity!
