Gasteranthus extinctus


The symposium is addressed to undergraduate and graduate students, national and international research professors and those interested in its thematic lines. As well as companies and civil society organizations interested in the conservation of plant species in the NW of Ecuador, since the symposium Synergistic strategies for in situ and ex situ conservation of endangered plant populations in NW Ecuador’s biodiversity hotspot is of an academic and divulgative nature. Those interested in participating can do so as attendees by completing the registration form and by paying the symposium fee.


The cost of the symposium includes two lunches, a dinner, an artistic event, simultaneous translation service and a certificate of attendance for 20 academic hours.
